Description by OLDIES.com:

Renowned for his Mr. Moto mysteries, John P. Marquand also penned novels that examined upper-strata society and made the page-to-screen transition: H.M. Pulham, Esq., The Late George Apley and B.F.'s Daughter. Barbara Stanwyck portrays Polly Fulton, a tycoon's daughter, in this glossy screen tale of the clash between haves and have-nots. She weds a left-wing professor (Van Heflin) who disdains her privileged lifestyle. When the prof meets professional failure, Polly secretly buys him a career. The stars, who struck sparks in The Strange Love of Martha Ivers, prove again what an intense team they make. Charles Coburn as fiery B.F. and Keenan Wynn as a Machiavellian radio commentator add top support.

Product Description:

Barbara Stanwyck plays Polly Fulton, rebellious daughter of a wealthy industrialist (Charles Coburn). Polly marries a conservative economist professor (Richard Hart), but she chafes at his values and leaves him for socialist professor Van Heflin. Polly nearly ruins both her father's reputation and her own by embracing Heflin's radicalism. Based on a novel by J. P. Marquand, B.F.'S DAUGHTER emerges as an unsubtle swipe at the policies of the late president Franklin Roosevelt; perhaps this was at the behest of MGM's arch-Republican head man Louis B. Mayer. In England, where the letters "B. F." comprise a euphemism for "bloody fool", the film was retitled POLLY FULTON.
