Movie Details

Fading star Mae Busch and up-and-coming Jean Arthur play major roles in Husband Hunters. A variation of the old "Gold-Diggers of Broadway" formula, the story concerns the amorous exploits of chorus girls Marie (Busch) and Helen (Duane Thompson), who dedicate themselves to landing millionaire hubbies. The girls enlist innocent young Letty Crane (Jean Arthur), a small-town girl who hopes to make it big on Broadway, in their scheme. Sure enough, Letty's heart is broken by a no-good cad, but by fade-out time she is the only one of the three female protagonists who has found lasting romance. Mildred Harris, the former wife of Charlie Chaplin, appears in a supporting role. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
