Knockabout romantic comedy starring Clark Gable and Doris Day. Gable plays Jim Gannon, a tough, self-educated newspaper editor who writes an article disparaging the idea that newspaper journalism can be taught, in response to the news that a class is being set up to teach the subject to aspiring journalists. Gannon's publisher senses a story in the making, and so sends Gannon to attend the class, under an assumed name, which is being run by feisty Erica Stone (Day), the daughter of a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter. Before long Gannon's writing skills have brought him to the top of the class, and an underlying attraction has developed between teacher and student. However, Erica's arrogant fiancÃ©, Dr Hugo Pine (Gig Young) and Gannon's nightclub singer girlfriend Peggy DeFore (Mamie Van Doren) are the obstacles standing in the way of true love.
