Comment
Katherine Hepburn comes from a wealthy society background but wants to make her way in the theatre without the backing of her family name. She moves into a theatrical boarding house and shares a room with Ginger Rogers and experiences all the emotional high's and low's of being an aspiring actress. The plot is not great, but the film does move with a good pace to keep the interest and there are good performances from Katehrine Hepburn, Ginger Rogers (in one of her dramatic rather than dancing roles) and Andrea Leeds.
