On-the-make Kay Francis and Lilyan Tashman crack wise and pocket cash and/or checks nightly while “snaring men’s hearts for the fun of it,” per the poster. Yet, as with many a Cukor film’s female protagonists, sea changes are possible; the roomies’ yacht outing introduces them to sly married moneybags Eugene Pallette and nice-guy striver Joel McCrea. Co-written and associate-produced by silent-film-era star Raymond Griffith.

A film by George Cukor
