Plot Summary
Kitty Lorraine (Alice Brady) has one purpose in life: turning her daughter Shirley (Maureen O'Sullivan) into a star. Kitty controls every aspect of the girl's nascent career -- even blackmailing a stage manager so that Shirley can take a more prestigious gig. But Kitty goes too far when she breaks up her daughter's budding relationship with sweet artist Warren Foster (Franchot Tone). Heartbroken, Shirley sets off on a series of disastrous but profitable relationships.
