Bank employee Ruth Brock has a reputation around town for being fast-and-easy but none of the panting suitors has made her yet. She disillusions them one after the other, but the last lad is a bad sport and starts a gossip scandal, among the hens and roosters, about her and a millionaire playboy and Ruth loses her job. Figuring that as long as she has the name, she might as well play the game, she looks him up. Written by

Small town 'nice' girl (Nancy Carroll) becomes victim of rumors that she spent the night with wealthy playboy (Cary Grant). Because of this she loses her job and her boyfriend (Randolph Scott). Decent Pre-Coder with some risqué subject matter. Love the funny scene where Nancy Carroll wrestles her younger sister and removes her underwear. Carroll is cute and has good chemistry with Grant. Cary's very charming even this early in his career. Scott's fine, too. Jane Darwell plays Carroll's shrewish mother. Nice production and small town atmosphere. I saw this on TCM and the print is exceptionally good for a movie this old.
