About this show

Harry, a ruthless, thuggish millionaire, goes to Washington — with his showgirl fiancée, Billie, in tow — to bribe a senator and enrich his business interests. He soon hires a reporter to clean up Billie's image, but as she awakens to a world full of possibilities, she starts to question corruption's stranglehold over the disadvantaged. Garson Kanin's delightful and dangerous comedy is a timely exploration of politics, profiteering, and the importance of an educated electorate.
