Lady for a Night 1942
In the late 1800s, Jenny Blake, the beautiful owner of the Memphis Belle , a riverboat casino, aspires to a life in high society. The upper classes of Memphis society look down on Jenny because of her occupation, however, even though the men of aristocratic families regularly visit her establishment. Jack Morgan, co-owner of the Memphis Belle and an influential political boss, is in love with Jenny but arranges for her to be crowned queen of the high society Mardi Gras carnival in order to teach her a lesson. Despite the humiliation she suffers when the partygoers are infuriated by her presence, Jenny is determined to break into society. Her opportunity comes in the form of Alan Alderson, the drunken, cynical scion of an old family that owns a once-grand plantation called "The Shadows." Despite enormous tax burdens that threaten the loss of "The Shadows," Alan gambles and loses heavily at Jenny's club. She offers to forgive his debts and pay off his taxes if he will marry her, thereby giving her a respectable name and position. Alan reluctantly agrees and they are married immediately. However, Alan's family are distraught at the thought of Jenny joining their number, and do everything in their power to ruin Jenny in the eyes of society...
