Description by OLDIES.com:
Jane Thomas (Lana Turner) has everything: beauty, youth, brains. Everything except breeding or what passes for breeding among the snooty mean girls she meets at a college house party. Radiant 18-year-old Turner was on the cusp of fame when she made this smart, perceptive comedy-drama about a dime-a-dancer invited to a swank soiree by a drunken college boy (who regrets his socially humiliating impulse once he sobers up). Jane can turn tail for home - or turn the tables on the arrogant upper crust. The stellar supporting cast includes Lew Ayres as her chagrined date, and Anita Louise, Jane Bryan, Marsha Hunt and Ann Rutherford among the debs and hangers-on whose lives may not be as magical as Jane imagines.
In this comedy/drama, a feisty taxi-dancer (Lana Turner in her first starring role) takes on a sorority full of snooty debutantes after an equally snobbish Ivy Leaguer (Lew Ayres) who goes on a bender, meets her and invites her to his school's annual weekend bash. The next day, the fellow forgets all about the invite. When the party begins, the low-class girl shows up. The fellow then warns her that the catty debutante crowd will gleefully unsheathe their claws and rip her to shreds. The taxi-dancer is not so easily frightened and not only stays, she also stands up to every one of the wicked sorority sisters. She then gets sweet revenge by making herself the most popular girl of the weekend.
