Directed by Jim Chiolino
An uncouth, corrupt rich junk dealer, Harry Brock, brings his showgirl mistress, Billie Dawn, with him to Washington, D.C. When Billie's ignorance becomes a liability to Brock's business dealings, he hires a journalist, Paul Verrall, to educate his girlfriend. In the process of learning, Billie Dawn realizes how corrupt Harry is and begins interfering with his plans to bribe a Congressman into passing legislation that would allow Brock's business to make more money.
Timely exploration of corruption & resistance! Set immediately post-WW II.
