Synopsis
Patti Hansen was young and beautiful, and always found it easy to manipulate men with a look or a smile. After she got a job at the local factory, she met the new foreman, Larry Gleason, and decided that she was going to make him fall for her... and give her the life she wanted. And it worked until Larry learned that Patti was still in high school. When Patti confessed, Larry forgave her, telling her that he was willing to wait until she finished school to see if they still felt the same way about each other.
