The Girl from Missouri

Directed by Jack Conway • 1934 • United States
Starring Jean Harlow, Lionel Barrymore, Franchot Tone

The first film Jean Harlow made under the newly enforced Production Code finds the star managing to retain her brassy charm while subtly softening her bombshell-vamp image. Running away from her Missouri home, ambitious Eadie Chapman (Harlow) heads to New York with hopes of marrying a rich husband. Finding work as a showgirl, she soon sets her sights on wealthy playboy Tom Paige (Franchot Tone). The question is: Can the gold-digging but good-hearted Eadie manage to reel in her man while also holding on to her virtue?
