A socialite brings her unconventional fiancee home to meet her wealthy New York family, only to have him fall for her free-spirited sister, Hepburn, in what Pauline Kael calls "her archetypal role."
Hepburn was understudy for this role on Broadway in 1928, and she chose it for her initial Hollywood screen test.
