Class distinction rears its ugly head in this otherwise tuneful little musical from the pens of Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart. Ona Munson plays Julie Hunter, a society belle who falls in love with Hap Harrigan (Ben Lyons), a lowly construction worker. But their different stature in life makes a romance difficult and Julie takes to claiming that Hap is an architect. Slick Clay (Walter Pidgeon), who is in love with Julie, discovers the truth and an angry Hap leaves her after an argument. But Julie is determined and eventually proves that she is perfectly willing to live on Hap's salary. Although Rodgers and Hart reportedly were so disappointed with the outcome of The Hot Heiress that they broke their contract with Warner Bros./First National, there is nothing wrong with their score, which includes "You're the Cats," "Riveter's Song," and "Too Good to Be True."
