Three New York models, Schatze, Pola, and Loco sublet a luxury penthouse apartment with a plan: they are tired of cheap men and a lack of money, so they'll use all their talents to trap and marry millionaires. The trouble is that it's not so easy to tell the rich men from the hucksters. Recent divorcee Schatze meets real-estate mogul Tom, but thinks he looks like a gas station attendant. Loco gets involved with a married man, but falls for forest ranger Eben. Blind as a bat Pola refuses to wear her glasses, and thus winds up on the wrong plane, but meets Freddie--who actually owns the penthouse they're renting! So which is better: to marry for love or money?
