Hot Saturday is a 1932 American pre-Code drama film directed by William A. Seiter and starring Nancy Carroll, Cary Grant, and Randolph Scott.[1] This was Grant's first role as a leading man. Based on the novel Hot Saturday by Harvey Fergusson, the film is about a pretty, virtuous small-town bank clerk who becomes the victim of a vicious rumor.

Plot

A pretty young bank clerk, Ruth Brock, attracts the young men in the small town of Marysville. Rich playboy Romer Sheffield is no exception, even though he has Camille staying openly at his mansion, scandalizing the locals. Jealous, Camille soon leaves.

Ruth, however, is all business whenever Romer tries to become better acquainted with her at the bank. She agrees to go on a date on Saturday with fellow employee Connie Billup. Romer invites Connie and his crowd to party at his estate, offering free food and drink, just so he can spend some time with Ruth. They stay long enough for Romer to take Ruth on a long walk and have a heartfelt conversation.

The gang then heads to a lakeshore dance hall. Connie gets Ruth alone on a nighttime boat ride, but she jumps ashore to avoid his unwanted advances. Out of spite, he leaves her behind. She has to walk to Romer's estate. Connie eventually finds her there, but she does not want to see him, and Romer makes him drive away without her. Romer sends Ruth home in his chauffeured car; she is seen arriving home early in the morning by Eva Randolph, the daughter of an important bank executive.

Inside, Ruth is pleasantly surprised to find childhood friend and geologist Bill Fadden in the kitchen. He has returned to do some surveying after seven years away. Bill makes it clear he is in love with her.

When Eva questions Connie about what happened the night before, he lies. The lies quickly spread, and soon the local gossips have distorted the story so much that everybody thinks that Ruth and Romer are having a brazen affair. As a result, Eva's father fires Ruth.

After quarreling with her mother, Ruth flees to Bill's campsite. Caught in a rainstorm, she faints just outside Bill's shelter. Bill finds her and brings her inside. When he is unable to awaken her, he removes her wet clothes to keep her warm. When she does regain consciousness, they become engaged, though she does not tell him about the ugly rumors.

However, Connie maliciously has Eva invite Romer to the dance hall where Ruth and Bill are. Once Romer grasps the situation, he graciously tries to bow out, but Bill hears the vicious gossip and breaks off the engagement. By the next morning, Bill has reconsidered, but she informs him that while the stories were not true the night before, they are now in the morning. She spent the night with Romer. Romer picks her up and tells her they will get married in New York.
