Our Score
Jean Arthur's smart, sassy brittleness may be an acquired taste, but to her fans she can brighten up any comedy - including this one, which has a touch of Frank Capra in its theme. Arthur plays a shopgirl who suddenly comes face to face with the big boss, tycoon Charles Coburn, when he decides to pose as an employee. The cast members put in polished performances, with leading man Robert Cummings the only disappointment.


A millionaire businessman masquerades as a humble shop assistant in his own department store in a bid to understand why some of his employees are unhappy with their situation - and gets a surprising insight into how the other half lives. Comedy, starring Charles Coburn, Jean Arthur, Robert Cummings, Spring Byington and Edmund Gwenn.
