Cast (feature film)

An innocent ex-con sets out to find the real criminals.
A small-town teenager thinks a lawyer is her illegitimate dad.
Judy Gibson (Jean Porter), upon leaving finishing school, goes to meet her relatives, whom she believes to be wealthy and socially prominent. Actually, ther are penniless Broadway characters and, in order to avoid Judy learning the truth, they take possession of a Long Island mansion owned by a thief presently doing time in Sing Sing. Judy arrives with her fiance Dick Nichols (John Shelton) and his father (Douglas Wood), an industrialist who tries to sell worthless stock to Judy's family in order to bolster his shaky fiancial status. They give him $200,000, part of the stashed loot they found belonging to the home-owner thief. The latter escapes from prison. Complications arise. Jerry Wald and his band provide music for Jean Porter's singing, and pert-'n-pretty Porter, as usual, carries the show.
Socialite Cathy Abbott (Jean Porter) is working in the chorus of a Broadway show instead of being enrolled at an exclusive girl's school as her parents (Regina Wallace and Douglas Wood) 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).
In this remake of Libeled Lady, a tough newspaper editor hires a gigolo to compromise a woman suing his paper for libel.

Here, she (as Joanne Leeds), interrupts her carnival singing career to enroll as a freshman at Upton College. She quickly encounters the snobbery of the sorority girls because of her background. But the sorority is reorganized on democratic principles and she is invited to join, although it is never made too clear why she would want to join this group of airheads anyway.
