Hot Saturday is a 1932 American drama film directed by William A. Seiter and starring Nancy Carroll, Cary Grant, and Randolph Scott.[1] Based on the novel Hot Saturday by Harvey Fergusson, the film is about a pretty but virtuous small-town bank clerk who becomes the victim of a vicious rumor from an unsuccessful suitor that she spent the night with a notorious womanizer. Hot Saturday was released on DVD as part of a three disc, six film set entitled Pre-Code Hollywood Collection on April 7, 2009.[2] The film was Cary Grant's first movie as leading man.


A pretty young bank clerk, Ruth Brock (Nancy Carroll), catches the eye of all the young men in the small town of Marysville, including a rich playboy, Romer Sheffield (Cary Grant). Ruth's flirtation with Sheffield angers her date, Conny Billup (Edward Woods), and she becomes the subject of local gossip, with disastrous results for her reputation. Soon Ruth's childhood sweetheart, Bill Fadden (Randolph Scott), returns for a visit, clearly still interested in her.
