When a wealthy divorcee hires a male escort, only to have him fall for her daughter Mary, it’s just the start of the trouble in this breathless “cautionary” tale from 1940.
Across the country, Mary’s friend Helen is kicked out of her home after one too many wild jitterbug parties, and she runs off to become a mail-order bride. She invites Mary to live with her — but Mary finds out too late that it’s a cruel ruse designed to trap her into a life of prostitution. She’s in danger of slipping into the underworld for good … unless the gigolo that loves her can save her in time!
