Storyline

A cafeteria cashier is hired by a cosmetic firm's publicity agent to live the life of Daisy Appleby, heiress to a fortune. Gossip about her will keep the Appleby name in the forefront. She proposes a marriage of convenience to reporter Johnny Jones (she can avoid fortune hunters, on her wealth he can write his novel). Johnny is unwilling to play escort at all her social affairs. After he is arrested for speeding, and on probation, she insists on it. In spite, he makes advances toward Hortense, the daughter of an oil tycoon, who tells him Daisy is a phoney. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@cc.wwu.edu>

Better Than It Seems At First
5 June 2006 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

George Brent is a reporter sent to interview an heiress. She is supposedly the heir to a face cream fortune. He interviews her on her yacht. They fall for each other in bathing costumes.

It turns out (quite early) that she is not an heiress. She part of an advertising campaign for the cold cream.

The movie follows the ups and downs of their romance.

The supporting cast does little to buoy it up. Davis and Brent carry the picture. Though it's fairly predictable, it is also fairly entertaining. It's far from her best. But, especially considering its obscurity in her oeuvre, it's not one of her worst, either.
