Mary gets bored and goes on a blind date with her housekeepers. She meets Stretch Willoghby (Gary Cooper) and tells him she's a maid. On a whim, she follows him to Texas and they get married. She soon gets scared and heads back to Florida. Stretch follows and discovers who she really is. He tells her father's rich politician friends what he thinks of them and heads back to his ranch in Montana.

Review - Cowboy and the Lady, The

Kinda cute, but not as funny as it thought it was. Gary Cooper was good except in the long scene where he's imagining life with Mary in his unfinished house.
