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.

Delightful comedy, due to the expressive nature of Ms. Davis
16 February 2003 | by (Queensland, Australia) – See all my reviews

Bette Davis plays a woman who is pretending to be an heiress to a cosmetic company, Daisy Appleby. George Brent plays Johnny Jones, a reporter. They become friends, and she convinces him to enter into a marriage of convenience. Her - to keep away fortune hunters, Him - to have finances to write his book. He is expected to play to her every whim, and appear in all the newspapers. Not liking this, he cosies up to Hortense, daughter of an oil tycoon, who informs him that Daisy is not all she seems. I don't really know alot about Bette Davis, but this is a delightful comedy, mostly due to the timing of both lead actors, and Bette Davis' facial expressions. She really does have expressive eyes, doesn't she?
