Three department store girls--Connie, Franky, and Jerry--share an apartment on West 91st Street in New York City. Each earns little more than 20 dollars per week. Jerry is the sensible one, but the others throw themselves at amoral rich men in an attempt to hook one and better themselves. They end up being hurt and disappointed despite Jerry's attempts to warn them. Written by

Mrs. Hinkle, the Landlady:
Mr. Carter, third floor front. He's a process server. That's a real influential job. He thinks you're pretty nice. He'd like to take you out.
Geraldine 'Gerry' March:
No thank you, Mrs. Hinkle. You see, I'm avoiding process servers this season

If you don't like the later in life Joan Crawford movies, then try her in 1930. A different, looser, comedic Joan captures the picture with warmth, pathos and charm. A great performance. This is another of Crawford's pre-code pictures with lots of scantily clad women, a reference to snorting cocaine, two women kissing on the mouth and a mention (By Anita Page) of letting her husband "in" one night. In one scene Hattie McDaniel's offers Joan Crawford a Coca - Cola! Years later that might have been a product placement for Pepsi instead! Robert Montgomery doesn't have much to do but stand around a nd deliver his lines but the supporting cast, including Hedda Hopper is very good. This 1930 MGM movie is WORTH SEEING.
