This is a 1939 romantic comedy-drama directed by John Cromwell.
John Mason (James Stewart) is a young, somewhat timid attorney in New York City.
John meets Jane (Carole Lombard) during a business trip, and they fall in love and marry immediately.
To his disappointment, his employer Judge Doolittle has chosen John's kowtowing coworker Carter as the new partner.
Jane encourages John to demand a raise and a promotion, but with finances tightened by the Depression, Doolittle requires that all employees accept pay cuts.
After Jane has a baby, John becomes discouraged by his unpaid bills and by tension between Jane and his mother, who lives with them in their small apartment.
On New Year's Eve, 1938–39, the baby is rushed to the hospital with pneumonia.
The baby will die within hours unless a serum is delivered by plane from Salt Lake City.
Doolittle agrees to provide funding to deliver the serum, but with a storm raging, and with a wife and children to consider, the pilot refuses to fly.
John pleads over the telephone, and the pilot's unmarried friend takes the job.
The new pilot almost crashes in the mountains, and the plane's engine catches fire a short distance from New York.
With a plenty of thrill and suspence, the baby is saved after all.
You'll find it out.
At the end, his son will speak his first words, and you'll certainly laugh your head off.
