Listen, you wisecracking, bad-mouthing glamour girl. I've had all your kind of friend that I can use. Why, I wouldn't breathe the same air with you and your pedigree polo shirts for another five minutes.

Lana Tests The Dizzying Heights of Privileged Society
The glamour girls are played by Ann Rutherford (in the midst of her appearances in the Hardy Family series of films), Jane Bryan (a likable actress who would soon retire after marrying the head of the Rexall drug empire), Anita Louise, Marsha Hunt (who appeared in an Andy Hardy title earlier the same year), and Mary Beth Hughes (in her first credited film role). Lana Turner is the eighteen year old star of the film, who appeared in "Love Finds Andy Hardy" the prior year.
Turner, as Jane Thomas, is the outsider who inserts herself into the snobby world of pedigreed society while attending a celebratory weekend at Kingsford College, a fictional Ivy League school. With a lower-class background, Jane finds herself ill-equipped to run with the glamour girls and their privileged beaus, who fancy themselves as sophisticates but know little about common virtues like loyalty or fidelity. Turner has a fresh-faced allure and demonstrates a real talent for acting, as well as dancing acumen. It's too bad they didn't do a better job of filming her main dance sequence.
Lew Ayres (at age thirty and near the end of his marriage to Ginger Rogers) plays Philip Griswold, the object of Mary's affection. He is supposed to be the same age as the others, but comes across as too world-weary.
Look for the terrific fashions that accent the lifestyles of these poor little rich kids. The acting is solid, but the script can't decide if it wants to focus on the group or on the burgeoning romance, which is sidetracked more than it is on course.
