A wealthy but crude businessman, on a trip to the nation’s capital, is socially embarrassed by his ditzy, uncultured showgirl blonde girlfriend. He hires a reporter to “teach her the ropes,” a decision he later regrets when she becomes more savvy, questions his unscrupulous business deals, and falls in love with her tutor. This well-written script was the basis for a popular movie in 1950 and a remake in 1993.
