The Pink Lady Caper

Secretary Emily Borden (Virginia Gilmore) is in love with her boss, Henry Summers (James Ellison), but he is romancing society-babe Constance Powell (Janis Carter) and is too busy to notice. Co-worker Ralph (Dan Duryea) is interested in Emily but Emily has no interest in Ralph. Emily's grandmother (Alma Kruger) gives Emily the complicated plan she used to trap Grandpa and Emily, rather than saying "you gotta be kidding" goes along with it. First, she sends Hery a series of anonymous notes professing deep love for Henry, and signs them "The Pink Lady." The Pink Lady" asks Henry to meet her at the beach. Henry arrives and is startled to find Emily at the beach, but makes no connection between her and "The Pink Lady." But he takes note that Emily is something of a looker and takes her to dinner. Back in New York, Henry is told by an underworld character (part of Grannie's scheme" to stay away from "The Pink Lady. As far as Henry knows, he has never been around "The Pink Lady" to begin with but, to ensure that he will not encounter her, he decides to take an out-of-town business trip, and bring Emily along to attend to company-business affairs. Ralph has his eye on this situation and follows when Emily and Henry go out of town together, as Ralph is not buying the taking-care-of-the-office excuse. Alone with Emily for the first time, while they are attending to office-business, Henry realizes he is in love with her. But when Ralph breaks in, Henry gets mad and leaves. The repentant Henry tries to make up with Emily but she will not see him. So, he visits her home and, though she isn't there, he finds out that Emily is the mysterious "Pink Lady." He leaves a note for Emily saying he will be in the park at a specified time, and signs it "The Pink Lady."
