When she finds them there hunting her down, she manages to escape them by hiding in the car of a newspaper reporter.

He then decides to take her back to Hollywood to collect the reward for her return. But now love has entered the mix, and must be resolved with his job and her engagement to another.Written by
A remake of It Happened one Night (1934) with some important differences: the 1934 movie was a (non-musical) screwball comedy at 104 minutes, whereas the 1945 movie was a musical that ran only 64 minutes. Both were produced by Columbia Pictures. See more »

"Are you drunk?" ... "Mentally, yes. Alcoholically, no!"
Terrible script for perky songbird Ann Miller (looking like a grown-up version of Shirley Temple), doing her best with a ridiculous, derivative plot and lukewarm ballads. A radio singer on vacation in Las Vegas attempts to escape her swarming managers by hitching a ride in a guy's car; turns out he's a reporter for the Los Angeles Bulletin, and he thinks she's an escaped murderess. Even at 64 minutes, this thing's a long haul. Miller's character seems much too busy to have a social life, but then we suddenly discover she's been promised to a man named Walter W. Walter II. She really loves the reporter, named Ward Williams and played by William Wright. Her managers are played by Robert Williams and Ray Walker. These "Apples" are 'W' crazy. Ann's a peach, and she has a funny scene where she's cooked some beans for breakfast, but this vehicle for her is just a quickie product from Columbia--unworthy of Miller or anyone else. * from ****
