Sweet, lovely movie
This might be one of my favorite Gary Cooper movies. It ranks right up there with "Mr. Deeds..", "Meet John Doe", and "Ball of Fire". He is absolutely charming in this role of a cowboy who falls head-over-heels in love with a girl he barely knows. Merle Oberon is lovely as his sweetheart and their chemistry draws you in. I can't help but think "Coop" was just this kind of a guy in real life. No wonder the women fell right at his feet.
The Cowboy and the Lady
I watched it for the first time on 6/24/2016. The movie was excellent, romantic and very amusing! I wish Hollywood would make more movies like it.

It's not so much that the entire premise of this film is ludicrous (Presidential candidate's wayward daughter shipped off to Palm Beach where she meets rodeo star is only slightly less credible than daughter shipped off to Reno and hooks up with Portugese tuna fisherman) as that it's just not very funny. I mean, Gable and Lombard would have a tough time rising above this pallid script, let alone Oberon and Cooper, who have the comedic skills of a Federal Reserve Board meeting. The result is some serious boredom. Give it a C.
What a sweet film?
This is one of those hidden gems that is not shown very often but certainly worth viewing when it is on the telly. It will make you harken back to a time where real values were lived and the people were decent. The stunningly beautiful Merle Oberon is excellent in her role as the society girl posing as a lady's maid who meets and marries a cowboy. Her father is less than pleased and uses every ruse he knows to keep her in his house to assist him in getting an endorsement for the Presidency. I am a sucker for character actors and the beloved Harry Davenport is superb as her Uncle Hannibal Smith who is both very wise and her biggest supporter. Watch for another great character actor, Emma Dunn who plays Ma Hawkins. She adds the humor needed in this film Really nice little film worth watching!
The Cowboy & the Lady
- Patty Link
High society meets the old west. Merle Oberon's upper crust lifestyle runs smack into Gary Cooper's cowboy life and the fun begins. The drama and comedy of this film reveal the classic conflict between these two so different people and the two stars carefully wend their way through the conflicts with the rarely seen Cooper humor. I loved this film from start to finish and it's a pity not to have it on the TCM lineup more often!
I love this movie. Its soo hilarious. I"m already a Gary Cooper fan after watching this movie I love him even more. As Merle, I've only seen Withering Heights after seeing this movie wow she can be funny. I really hope this movie goes on dvd. i really watch this movie over and over.
MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIE
On the surface it is a sweet love story, but it is much more than that. It's about not getting caught up in the materialistic, petty things in life and cherishing the deep abiding love of home, family and friends. Gary Cooper is superb. The scene on the boat where his character says "there's something he forgot to say" . . . absolutely the most romantic moment ever. You are in love with this kind, awkward, sweet, innocent cowboy. Watch it, not expecting any special effects, nudity or vulgar language . . . expect a wonderfully funny, heartwarming, movie that will make you fall in love with Stetch Willoughby and every man like him. Don't let this jewel slip past you. Watch it.

- Dr.John W.S.Howard
My dears friends:I am writing because I am a big,big fan of TCM.I watch your films morning and night.However,my concern is you rarely show the films of Merle Oberon.I see Rock Hudson,John Wayne,Jean Arthur,Katherine Hepburn,Audrey Hepburn,Jimmy Stewart films over and over,back to back.Please sir and please Madam play the movies of the beautiful Merle Oberon.some of her films are:Over the Moon,Til we Meet again(my favorite),Affair in Monte Carlo to name a few.Let us see Merle back to back like the other Movie Stars are played.I like the Cowboy and the Lady however,I would be very pleased if you would you more.
