The Girl with the Million Dollar Legs, and the Hotel Clerk

Helen Rogers is a beautiful young lady who works as a stenographer in a large hotel, and Jim Morgan is a young fellow who works behind the front desk who is smitten with Helen. He wants to marry her and make a life with her, but Helen will have no part of working class Jim . . . she wants to become a movie star.

Her big break comes when a silk stocking manufacturer chooses Helen to be the model for his new advertising campaign. She becomes known as the girl with the million-dollar legs. This stocking manufacturer has a jealous wife who believes that her husband is having an affair with Helen, so she files for divorce, naming Helen as the ‘other woman,’ and suddenly Helen’s face and legs are on the front pages of newspapers all over the country.

Helen is suddenly swamped with offers to exploit her new fame, and she decides to quit her job at the hotel and break up with her desk clerk boyfriend. She is determined to have a wealthy future, unlike her poverty-stricken childhood. Helen signs a contract with a movie studio, with the naïve notion that life as a movie actress will not be much different than life as a stenographer, only with more money.

Actually, it isn’t much different. Men who surround movie studios and actresses are much like the men who surround beautiful stenographers, when it comes right down to it. Finding a wealthy true-love may be just as tricky as finding a working class true-love. Love is, as someone has said, where you find it. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
