A Fig Leaf for Exotic Dancer Eve
Actress Jan Wiley is Eve Lorraine, a sexy young lady who dances in nightclubs. One night while dancing seductively in a night club, her manager arranges to have her arrested so she can get more publicity. Eve is arrested and taken to night court, and she will be on the front page of tomorrow’s newspaper, making her manager very happy.
Eve is sitting in night court seething with anger because her manager has not shown up to bail her out, and Eve isn’t looking forward to a night in jail. Fortunately a bail bondsman is in the court room helping one of his regular clients, and he provides bail money for Eve so she will not need to spend the night in jail.
Eve goes to the bail bondsman’s office after getting out of court to arrange to pay him for his services and as they are talking, Eve mentions that her parents were actors who died in a tragic theater disaster when she was only two years old. This sparks a memory for the bail bondsman, who then searches for and finds an advertisement that offers a reward for anyone locating the daughter of two actors who perished in a theater disaster.
It turns out that Eve may be an heiress to a hair tonic fortune if she is that young daughter. Unfortunately, when she visits the man who is probably her long lost uncle, she must tangle with his wife and daughter, who do not want to share the family fortune with anyone, . . . . Especially an exotic dancer recently arrested for indecent exposure! High Society could never allow such a woman into their lives!
The scheming society wife, played by silent screen star Betty Blythe, will do whatever it takes to disgrace Eve and get her out of their life. Fortunately for Eve, she also meets crazy Aunt Sarah, the black sheep of the wealthy family. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
