Movie Summary

Director:
Jack Conway
Released:
1934
Rating:
R
Just point her in the direction of New York's millionaires! Fresh from Missouri, plucky and ambitious Eadie Chapman (Jean Harlow) intends to bag a rich hubby without abandoning her virtue. Just act like a lady, she tells gal pal and fellow huntress Kitty (Patsy Kelly) at a swanky soire?e. "If they wanted ladies," Kitty says, "they'd be home with their wives." As the girl from the "Show-Me" state, Harlow shows her comedy flair, abetted by the snappy co-scripting of her personal friend Anita Loos and by the nimble guidance of filmmaker Jack Conway, who would direct her in Libeled Lady. Lionel Barrymore plays the big shot scheming to keep his enamored son (Franchot Tone) away from Eadie. Good luck with that, Pops!
