Synopsis

Ernice is a Chicago newspaper columnist who regularly reports on the corrupt behavior of local politicians. When one of his pieces about a crooked alderman proves too controversial, the paper sends Ernie out to the Rocky Mountains to write a lightweight article about reclusive ornithologist Nell Porter. Nell wants no part of the project and orders Ernie to leave, but since his guide is gone and won't return for weeks, she relents and allows him to stay. Forced to put up with each other's company, the two find a way to tolerate the situation, and eventually fall in love.
