Girls About Town

There's an unwitting punch scene in this picture to draw laughter. It's where Kay Francis shows off her figure in undies while explaining she's through with the gold-digger racket and intends going straight because she's found love with a rich rube.

There’s an unwitting punch scene in this picture to draw laughter. It’s where Kay Francis shows off her figure in undies while explaining she’s through with the gold-digger racket and intends going straight because she’s found love with a rich rube.

When Francis falls for a young-looking sucker from a hick town the burn is on. She’s the dame with a twisted virtue. Only the boy friend would rather marry her than take her unawares even if she’s willing.

There’s some additional sentiment brought in between the elder of the two chumps, as played ingenuously by Eugene Pallette, and his middle-aged wife, as done by Lucile Gleason. He’s a tightwad and practical joker from Lansing. With the help of Lilyan Tashman, who does the gold-digger role as natural as it can seem, the bird’s wife works the old boy into a mad spree of jewelry buying.
