Solid Davies Vehicle

Marion Davies is wonderful as the Barbara Woolworth-like heiress in this comedy-drama. Despite her money (from her dad's five-and-dime-store) she is snubbed by snooty society girls at parties and as she vies for the love of a rich boy. Certainly one of Davies' better performances; she is quite charming.
