Synopsis
Rosemary grows up in poverty and vows to be rich some day. Working as a switchboard operator, she dates fellow worker Tom. Tom proposes marriage and she turns him down because he’s too poor. Rosemary invests her savings in a trip to Sun Valley to find a rich husband. She romances Jacques, pretending to be rich herself, and he proposes. Rosemary discovers she actually loves him and decides to confess all, but Jacques beats her to it: his name is Jack and he’s a fortune-hunter looking for a rich wife. Rosemary and Jack see the irony and will marry for love, not money.
