This is a film that picks you up and warms you up with a lot of laughs. IT is hilarious and really adorable. A take of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Ball of Fire has a superb cast and great dialogue. Gary Cooper is adorable as the the professor who falls for Stanwyck's character. I loved it form beginning to end.

Playful banter, sexy music, lots of familiar faces -- make some popcorn and have some fun! "Where do I know that old professor from?" Barbara and Gary make a good team ... and a good set up for a part two.

A spoof on Snow White, the beauty is a burlesque queen who needs to find a safe house to get the heat off. And what could be safer than a group of stodgy professors? Except one of them isn't as stuck in the mud as he thinks when he experiences "yum-yum" with the alluring Barbara Stanwyck. Lots of snappy dialogue and tons of quirky situations that include a performance by Dana Andrews who play a hoodlum! There is a lot more going on here than some would have you believe.

A precursor of TV's Big Bang Theory, in that a hot woman hangs out with a group of nerdy men.

Make no mistake, I shall regret the absence of your keen mind; unfortunately, it is inseparable from an extremely disturbing body.

A regular yum-yum type

Professor Potts tries to evict Miss O'Shea because she is distracting the encyclopedists from their work, but he gets distracted himself.
