ABOUT THE SHOW
Uncouth tycoon Harry Brock goes to Washington, D.C. with his brassy mistress, Emma 'Billie' Dawn, and his crooked lawyer, Jim Devery to "influence" a politician or two. The lawyer presses Harry to marry Billie on the grounds that a wife cannot testify against her husband. Dissatisfied with Billie’s ignorance and lack of manners, Harry hires a tutor, journalist Paul Verrall, to school and finesse BIllie. Blossoming under Paul's encouragement, Billie turns out to be much smarter than anybody realized and begins thinking for herself.
