"Julia Traynor is the private secretary of millionaire financial broker and playboy Jerry Stafford in New York. Julia does everything for Jerry, including purchasing jewelry for him to give to other women. One day, Jerry and Julia have a fancy catered lunch for two in Jerry's office, and he asks her to join him on a cruise. He admits he is against marriage, but at the same time, he wants to stop playing around. Julia humors him, but turns him down, saying she wants a husband of her own class who is young and just starting out as she is. They then both attend a football game with their respective dates. At a roadhouse afterward, Julia's boyfriend, Phillip Craig, talks of marriage, but they agree they must wait. After Jerry and his snobby date, Maybelle Worthington, enter, Jerry dances with Julia, again asking her to join him on a cruise. Phillip, fearful of losing Julia, marries her the following Monday morning. When she later comes in to work, Jerry proposes, and she reveals that she is already a married woman. Later, Jerry asks Phillip, who is struggling financially, to handle some business for him, and three months later, Julia and Phillip have made it into the upper class and Phillip has acquired the egotistic pride of the wealthy. After only a year of marriage, Phillip acquires a mistress, a blonde named Margaret Newton. On the night of his and Julia's one-year anniversary, Phillip nervously awaits the opening of the Tokyo stock market, to find out the results of a chancy stock investment he made in silk, which Jerry had warned him against. The dinner guests arrive, and Jerry, who hasn't seen Julia in a year, gives her an expensive bracelet and swears his love, telling her he is leaving on a long cruise at the end of the week. He then kisses her, and she reciprocates. At the end of the party, Phillip is drunk and confesses to Julia that he tried to corner the market on silk and lost, not only his fortune, but money he embezzled from clients as well. In addition, he lost some of Jerry's money, which he secretly used as collateral. Julia immediately calls Jerry and explains the situation, asking him for the money to keep Phillip out of prison. When she visits him to pick up the check, she offers herself to him, but he gallantly gives her the check without payment 'in kind, ' and she collapses. Later, Phillip accuses Julia of being Jerry's lover, and she kicks him out for his insolence. While she packs her bag, he accuses her of leaving him to rot in jail while she runs away with Jerry. Phillip then arrives at Jerry's house, drunk and with a gun. Jerry coolly warns Phillip he will stop payment on his check if Phillip shoots and misses. Now hysterical, Phillip shoots Jerry, who falls unconscious. The police find Julia's fingerprints on both the desk and the check and arrest her on a train bound for Washington. Phillip insinuates to the police that Julia was Jerry's mistress and that Jerry had threatened to leave her. He then confesses to Julia how the shooting really occurred and admits that he put the blame on her. The police have overheard Phillip's confession, however, and arrest him. During Phillip's trial, Jerry awakens from his coma and drops the charges against him. The newspapers make a celebrity out of Phillip and he continues to be a braggart. Julia, who got a job in a law office to support herself and Phillip during the course of the trial, finally walks out on him when he is exonerated, assuring him that her lawyer will be handling the divorce. As she leaves the apartment, Jerry arrives and asks, 'Wasn't it the south of France we decided you ought to see?'--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"Before millionaire opera benefactor and would-be big game hunter Lucius B. Blynn leaves Paris for Africa with his press agent, Corny Davis, Corny hears Suzette, an impressive French soprano, singing with a band lead by her boyfriend, American Jimmy James. Corny offers Suzette a chance to audition for Blynn in Africa, and Suzette, who longs to abandon jazz in favor of opera, accepts. While hunting in an African jungle, Corny leads Blynn to 'discover' Suzette, now called Oogahunga, the Bird-Girl. Dressed in a costume made of bird feathers, Suzette sings her way into Blynn's heart and is transported back to New York, where she is coached by an unsuspecting voice teacher. At the same time, Jimmy, who has no knowledge of Suzette's antics, prepares to open a new club, Chez Suzette, with Suzette as the show's headliner. When Suzette, posing as Blynn's exotic Bird-Girl, makes her American singing debut on the radio, Jimmy recognizes her voice and sneaks into her bedroom at Blynn's estate. Caught, Suzette reluctantly agrees to sing at Jimmy's club every night in order to maintain her Bird-Girl identity during the day. The arrangement works until Blynn invites opera maestro Andreas Mazzini and composer Carter Haig, who wants Suzette to perform his new opera, to hear his Bird-Girl. When Suzette appears, Mazzini and Haig are stunned but, anxious to keep their potential backer from humiliation, say nothing about their discovery. In spite of Mazzini and Corny's attempts at preventing Blynn from hearing Suzette's nightclub show, Suzette's ruse is finally revealed. Disgusted by the demands of both Mazzini and Blynn, however, Suzette announces that she is giving up opera to marry Jimmy and sing jazz"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"Before the final performance of a musical comedy at a New York theater, the cast and crew gossip about the evening news headline story that the star, ex-chorus girl Adele Michel, is about to marry the backer, Argentine millionaire Jose 'Gardenia' Lopez. After stage manager Tom Lennox confronts Adele and threatens to tell Lopez about their romance, Adele gets a threatening letter from Lopez's daughter Helen accusing her of only wanting her father's money. Because his butler James has forgotten his daily gardenia, Lopez angrily sends him to purchase one and tells him that he is fired as of the next day. Lopez then resumes a meeting with a jeweler named Melvin and accuses him of selling an imitation pearl necklace. Lopez telephones police lieutenant Roberts, but in the midst of the call, Roberts hears two gunshots and the line goes dead. As James returns with the gardenia, he sees a woman at the doorway of Lopez's apartment. Seeing James, the woman walks to a room down the hall and feigning that she is dizzy from a hangover, tells the man in the room, playwright Ricardo 'Ricky' Alonzo, that she is looking for the triplets whom she met on an ocean liner the day before. After Lopez is found dead, Roberts, an old friend of Ricky's, suggests that they attempt to solve the case together. When Roberts leaves, Ricky questions the mysterious woman. She explains that she came to the wrong building and that after James saw her looking at the dead man, she went to Ricky's door because she did not wish to be involved. Although Ricky does not believe the woman, to whom he is attracted, he decides to keep her with him as he investigates. After attending a party at the theater where Helen slaps Adele, Ricky and the woman, whom he introduces to others as Rita Witherspoon, find James at a small sandwich shop, and he reveals that he heard Helen threatened her father during a quarrel. Back at the apartment, Ricky and Rita go out to the terrace and, while looking through the glass door into Lopez's apartment, see leading man Phil Morton inside. After Ricky learns that Phil and Helen married in secret six months ago, he lets Phil leave with letters Phil came to retrieve. The next day, Ricky finds that Rita has left the room in his apartment in which she slept. After Adele is found stabbed to death, Ricky discovers Rita in a freight elevator at Adele's apartment building. Rita reveals that she is really a London newspaperwoman specializing in mystery stories and that she came to New York for material. When Lennox, in hiding, calls and requests Ricky to meet him right away, Ricky handcuffs Rita to his valet Giffens. Lennox, who says he is afraid of a police third degree, states that he went to tell Lopez about his affair with Adele and that he heard shots as he approached the study. He also states that Melvin was in the apartment. Thinking that Lennox is lying, Ricky phones the police, but Lennox pulls a gun and escapes through a window. At the theater, Ricky finds Phil looking for Helen. After they discover Giffens and Rita snooping, they find Helen bound and gagged in a closet. Phil takes her home, while Ricky finds Lennox asphyxiated in a car parked nearby. Ricky climbs to the roof of the theater and discovers that he can get to the terrace of his apartment building from there. He then finds Rita perusing papers in Lopez's desk, and she shows him a hidden drawer containing a will drawn to disinherit Helen. Phil approaches with a gun and confesses that he killed Lopez when he learned Helen was disinherited, but that Lennox saw him and told Adele. They planned to blackmail him and kidnapped Helen to force him to pay. After he also admits killing both Adele and Lennox and threatens now kill Ricky and Rita, she screams, allowing Ricky to struggle and get the gun. Rita then disappears. Sometime later, Ricky opens his door to find Rita in his room having drinks with the three triplets from the boat"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940

"Sunshine Joe, leader of a group of racketeers whose current occupation is ticket scalping, sends Georgie, the Chaser, so named for his love of women, to procure some fight tickets. Also in the gang are Benny South Street, Liverlips and Sam, the Gonoph. On the train to Philadelphia, Georgie reads about an heiress, Clarice Van Cleve, whose penchant for men in uniform has cost her father thousands of dollars. In order to prevent his daughter from eloping a fourth time, Van Cleve accompanies Clarice to Lonesome Pines, New Jersey, for a rest cure along with his best friend, Mr. Wilmot, and Wilmot's bookish son Hector, whom both fathers hope Clarice will marry. Georgie arrives at the retreat in a plane wearing a uniform and makes love to Clarice, claiming to be Captain Mario Valdez of the Foreign Flying Corps. Clarice falls for him immediately and accepts his proposal. Hector stops her from eloping, however, and Van Cleve places her in a girls school. Georgie, meanwhile, explains to the gang that he has invested $400 in an heiress whom he plans to marry. When the fight for which Georgie got tickets is cancelled, Joe and the gang decide to secure tickets for the Yale-Harvard football game. Georgie is about to leave for New Haven when Clarice arrives at the gang's apartment, having run away from school and been disinherited because she wants to marry Georgie. When he learns she is penniless, Georgie abandons her but promises to return to marry her after completing a secret mission for the 'king.' When Joe and the mugs return home, they find Clarice, who is determined to learn to run a house in Georgie's absence. After daily doses of Clarice's bad cooking and persistent discipline, Joe receives a telegram from Georgie saying he has skipped town with the Yale-Harvard profits and has found a new girl. When the mugs realize who their housemate is, Benny decides to reveal her whereabouts to Van Cleve and collect a reward. Van Cleve, convinced the mugs are the only people who can reform Clarice of her spoiled temperament, hires them to convince her to marry Hector, who is on the football team at Yale. The mugs take Clarice to the Yale-Harvard game, but Hector is such an incompetent athlete he isn't even on the bench. Liverlips forces the coach at gunpoint to put Hector in the game, and at the last minute, Hector gets the field goal Yale needs to win. He and Clarice then marry"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
