Eva Lovelace, would-be actress trying to crash the New York stage, is a wildly optimistic chatterbox full of theatrical mannerisms. Her looks, more than her talent, attract the interest of a paternal actor, a philandering producer, and an earnest playwright. Is she destined for stardom or the "casting couch"? Will she fade after the brief blooming of a "morning glory"? This was Katharine Hepburn's third film, and resulted in her first Academy Award for Best Actress. The film is based on a play and was remade in 1958 as "Stage Struck", with Susan Strasberg, Christopher Plummer and Henry Fonda in the three lead roles.

Director:  Lowell Sherman
