From nobody to top model in no time at all!
This is Linda Darnell's first film...and pretty amazing that they gave her a starring role! And, pretty amazing that it's a pretty good story.
The film begins with Marcia (Darnell) arriving in the big city to surprise her boyfriend. However, instead of being overjoyed, he clearly isn't....and Marcia quickly picks up on this. Because of this, she announces that it's over....as his reaction clearly showed her he wasn't interested. While she planned on immediately returning home to Syracuse, she gets discovered by a modeling agency. Soon, she's successful and happy. But what will she need to do to stay on top....and is she willing to do it?
Twentieth Century-Fox really had a lot of confidence in Darnell giving her such a plum role and giving the movie Ann Sothern in support (although she was listed first in the credits, she clearly was NOT the lead). And, while the plot sounds ridiculous, Darnell being in the movie is proof that someone CAN become a star overnight...as she did with this movie. Sadly, however, while it is a good movie, the ending really made little sense and should have been better. See it yourself...you'll see what I mean.
