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

Many of the models featured in the film were based in New York and flown out to Hollywood for filming. They were among the first to be introduced to Max Factor's new Pan-Cake makeup brand, which they then took back to New York, helping to quickly popularize the new item. See more »

Crazy Credits

The credits appear on pieces of fabric that unroll, and after each credit appears, the fabric displaying it is cut by a fashion model with a giant pair of scissors. See more »

Absolutely stunning early technicolor movie!
3 February 2000 | by martex34See all my reviews

Have not seen the entire movie as yet, but the mid to end is stunning! The usual story line was palatable but Baxter looked too old. Joan Bennett was super-duper beautiful with lovely speaking voice. Loved Mischa Auer and Alan Mowbray! The costuming was stupendous....furs, hats, ensembles to rave about. As a collector of vintage fashions, I am mesmerized by this spectacle and plan to try to find a copy of this great film.
