Fifth Avenue Girl
A wealthy older man and a poor young woman each get a chance to see how the other half lives in this comedy. Alfred Borden (Walter Connolly) is a millionaire who feels neglected by his family. His wife Martha (Verree Teasdale), daughter Katherine (Kathryn Adams), and son Tim (Tim Holt) usually ignore him, and all three manage to forget his birthday completely. Depressed and alone, Alfred bumps into Mary Grey (Ginger Rogers), a young woman who is out of work but is still happy with her lot in life. Alfred invites her to go to a night spot with him, and he soon hatches a scheme by which Mary will move into the guest room of the Borden Mansion and pose as a gold digger who is toying with Alfred's affections to get at his money. Mary's presence has a sudden impact on the family; Martha realizes that she needs to pay more attention to her husband, Katherine falls in love with the family's leftist chauffeur (James Ellison), and Tim starts taking an interest in the family business, and in Mary. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Three guys and one girl, what give?

    In a odd plot where a young woman manages to get herself engage to 3 different men simultaneously, one only wonders what the screen writer was thinking. The 3 suitors were well played where the backgrounds of these men reflected their personalities and how they interacted with the Rogers character. The story was saved by the superb acting of Ms. Rogers. No spoilers here about the outcome of this odd story.
