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>

Vivid Technicolor, startling camerawork, swellegant fashions, and that's about it. One great song ("That Old Feeling") and a couple of beguiling specialty acts, but they're nobodies and totally unrelated to the rest of the action, so how much can you care? The story is trite and feeble even by the meager standards of 1930s musicals, and star power is lacking.
