Description by OLDIES.com:
No smoking. No drinking. No lipstick. Pretty Virginia Radcliffe (Frances Dee) earnestly accepts the strict rules enforced by exclusive Crockett Hall. Have a smoke, have a drink and have a wild weekend in New York, suggests her roommate Pony Ferris (Ginger Rogers), who knows the rules have nothing to do with the girls' welfare and everything to do with the school's reputation. Adorably worldly, appealingly smart, third-billed Rogers steals the show in Finishing School, giving pretense a swift kick in the comedy keester as she mother-hens her classmates through a booze-and-bad-boy Manhattan fling. The frank pre-Code storyline even allows innocent Virginia to wind up pregnant... and unpunished.
At an exclusive girls' school where hypocrisy reigns, a wealthy student falls in love with a struggling hospital intern.
Welcome to Crockett Hall, an exclusive girls' school where the students learn more about maintaining their social standing than expanding their knowledge. One of the pupils, Virginia Radcliff, has fallen in love with Ralph MacFarland, a poor hospital intern who works as a waiter to get by. Because of his lower class, the school superintendent and Virginia's snobbish mother try everything in their power to separate the young couple. Will the selfish adults succeed'
