This is surely one of the most delightful movies to come out during the war years-and it actually makes good use of it.
Jean Arthur, in an act of patriotism, decides to rent her extra bedroom out to help with the shortage of housing in D.C.
Charles Coburn (in a terrific performance) finagles his way into the room. He immediately decides she needs a husband and Joel McCrea comes down the street minutes later and is drafted (unknowingly) to perform this function.
Much of the funniest moments are Coburn's as he attempts to follow the rigid schedule Arthur has handed him. But the chemistry between McCrea and Arthur fuels it too.
