Still in her ingenue stage (at age 35!), Broadway favorite Billie Burke stars in Away Goes Prudence. Burke plays a dizzy socialite who enjoys aviation-not as a passenger, but as a pilot. Her fiance Percy Marmont threatens to break off the engagement unless Burke keeps both feet on the ground. The plot is resolved in a lively finale involving a gang of kidnappers. Away Goes Prudence represents one of the few times that Billie Burke took to the air before playing Glinda the Good Witch in The Wizard of Oz (1939).
