She Wouldn’t Say Yes is a 1945 comedy starring Rosalind Russell as psychiatrist Susan Lane. She’s so frigid her nipples could be called the tips of the iceberg. And she insists on rationality and thinks that anyone who isn’t is maladjusted. Queen Buzzkill And Enemy Of Fun.
Michael Kent (Lee Bowman) is a cartoonist in the Army who bumps into her (literally), and later finds himself assigned to the same berth as she on a cross-country train. Kent writes and draws a comic called The Nixie, about an imp that whistles into people’s ears to allow them to act on impulses that some people – especially Dr. Lane – would find childish.
Standard ‘Fun-loving guy meets fun-hating girl’ set-up, and you just know how it’s going to end.
I’ve not seen this film before, and it’s about half-over at this point. I’m enjoying it.
