What happens when three models shack up in a pre-furnished apartment for a year? Why, they sell all of the furniture in order to marry a millionaire, of course!

Lauren Bacall’s character is the mastermind behind the operation of snagging millionaire men. And besides planning the rich future of the three bride-to-bes, she manages to smoke more cigarettes than any other leading lady that I have seen. Even Gilda!

And so the ladies set out on planes, in tranes, and police-escorted automobiles, to be wined and dined by their choice eligible bachelors. Of course, nothing works out exactly as they had planned.

In the end, each of the girls find happiness, some of them find wealth, and they all manage to keep wrapped up in mink and fox furs. (P.S. This film is so much fun that even my Phil enjoyed it!)
