The naive, but headstrong rodeo cowboy, Bo, falls in love with Cherie, a “fifth rate” nightclub singer. Determined that Cherie is the girl of his dreams, Bo kidnaps her with the intention of taking her back to his ranch in Montana, getting married and living happily ever after. When the bus stops at Grace’s Diner, the passengers learn the road is blocked and they have to wait out the bad weather together. This 1955 romantic comedy was nominated for four Tony Awards and was adapted for film in 1956, starring Marilyn Monroe.
