Socialite Cathy Abbott (Jean Porter(I)') is working in the chorus of a Broadway show instead of being enrolled at an exclusive girl's school as her parents think. When the show closes, she brings two of her chorus friends, Patti Calhoun (June Preisser) and Vicki Adams ('Judy Clark'), home with her. In addition to trying to make her friends acceptable to the snooty society of which her family is part, she is also being blackmailed by a rival. She and her two friends win over the blue-bloods with a couple of chorus routines, and she discloses she will be marrying the butler, Tommy Randell (Jimmy Lloyd), rather than the pompous Freddie Ainsley (Rick Vallin).

I've been hoping to see this movie for forty years. My high school chemistry teacher, Mildred Pile, used to regale us with tales of appearing somewhere in the film with a singing group known as The Hendry Sisters. Clearly she had a great fondness for the era -- even in the early 70s she was still having 1940s clothes styled for her and wore her hair like an Andrews Sister, convinced hers was the very peak of high fashion. As the years went on, the legend grew to the point she began to claim the title actually referred to them. "My sisters were the blonds and I was the redhead," she would sigh. Even at the time, I suspected that was a wild exaggeration but I hope she wasn't completely delusional and they really do appear somewhere in the film, even in the background. If anyone knows where I might locate a copy, please let me know.
