Storyline

The blueblooded Van Kletterings are broke; debutante Wendy, slated to remedy this by marrying rich bore Henry Morgan, instead leaves him at the altar and goes to work as a model for high-fashion clothing designer George Curson, whom she soon falls for. But he's happily married (at least on his side) and going into debt financing a show to please wife Mary's desire for stardom. Vindictive Morgan, jealous of George, hopes to hasten his ruin. Can the House of Curson be saved? Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Trivia

Walter Wanger wanted to make a Vogues movie since 1934 (he signed Frances Langford for it in December 1934), but waited till the Technicolor process reached a higher state of development. Langford was listed as member of the cast till 1937 and it is unknown if there were any scenes with her shot, but she does not appear in the final version. See more »

Fashion Models in the 1930's !
21 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Decided to watch this film and see what was going on in 1937 and what the charming ladies looked like in order to attract the opposite sex. Well, hats were the in THING, along with FURS, and some pretty nice styles with wild woman's hairdo's. Joan Bennett, (Wendy Van Klettering),"Scarlet Street",'45, was very slim and trim and very attractive with a rather sexy voice. Wendy was not very happy about getting married and became " A Runaway Bride" in the 1930's. The husband she was to marry was, Alan Mowbray,(Henry Morgan),"I Wake Up Screaming",'41, who played a rather dumb role and gave a great supporting role. Warner Baxter, (George Curson), "Shadows in the Night",'41, ran a model agency and had all the best looking gals show off their fancy clothing. There was a great scene at the "COTTON CLUB", and fantastic dancing and way out musicians. If you want to take a look way back into the past and see how that generation enjoyed themselves, this is worth viewing.
