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?

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
Betty Grable and June Haver pour on the singing, dancing and show-biz razzmatazz in this jaunty tale of sisters who become vaudeville sensations in Europe and America. Grable, then in the fourth year of her decade-long reign as a Top 10 box office star, grabs the spotlight as Jenny, a gifted performer torn by career demands and by her on-again, off-again romance with a Tin Pan Alley tunesmith (John Payne). Laced throughout are songs (including the Oscar® -nominated "I Can't Begin to Tell You") and splashy production numbers that let the GI's favorite pinup girl show off her talents and the gams that Fox, in a noted publicity stunt, had insured for a million dollars
