Summary
Patsy Harrington [is] the drudge of her social-climbing family. Secretly in love with Tony Anderson, the boyfriend of her irresponsible but irresistible sister Grace, Patsy yearns to be a 'personality girl.' Rather than cultivate her looks, she decides to become the 'intellectual' of her family, which outrages her mother who believes that beauty and brains don't mix. Meanwhile, the fickle Grace begins cheating on Tony with a millionaire named Bill. For Tony's sake, the 'new' Patsy throws herself at Grace's new beau, hoping to break up the romance
