Description by

Just point her in the direction of New York's millionaires! Fresh from Missouri, plucky and ambitious Eadie Chapman (Jean Harlow) intends to bag a rich hubby without abandoning her virtue. Just act like a lady, she tells gal pal and fellow huntress Kitty (Patsy Kelly) at a swanky soiree. "If they wanted ladies," Kitty says, "they'd be home with their wives."

As the girl from the Show-Me state, Harlow shows her comedy flair, abetted by the snappy co-scripting of her personal friend Anita Loos and by the nimble guidance of filmmaker Jack Conway, who would direct her in Libeled Lady. Lionel Barrymore plays the big shot scheming to keep his enamored son (Franchot Tone) away from Eadie. Good luck with that, Pops!

Product Description:

The co-writers of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes also penned this delightful comedy. Would-be gold-digger Harlow wants to land playboy millionaire Tone, who in turn sees her as just another possible conquest. Lots of laughs, especially from the sharp-tongued Kelly who plays Harlow's pal.


Production Notes:

  • Additional cast: Hale Hamilton (Charlie Turner).
  • The Hays Office, which approved films for distribution, was said to have "unofficially rejected" the movie.
  • In order to comply with the Hays Code, MGM, authorized script changes. This caused director Sam Wood to quit in the middle of production; Jack Conway replaced him. To this day it is not known how much footage (if any) was directed by Wood. It is assumed that cinematographer Hal Rosson quit the picture at the same time as Wood. Ray June replaced him.
  • Sound by the Western Electric Sound System.
