"He'll never marry her"
"How can you be so sure?"
The formidable matriarch of the family Grenville that the ambitious Ann tries so hard with is the Emily Post of her day. Alice Grenville has it all. Money, breeding, houses, horses, jewels and manners. She knows that Ann has designs on her only son - Billy, and resigns herself when is a quick wedding takes place. Her daughters cordially loathe her. Ann may be beautiful, but after all she was a showgirl.... and she wears scarlet lipstick, eye-shadow in the afternoon, over dresses and - horror - cuts her bread roll with a knife at the table.
But, Ann is a quick learner.
