Wallflower Jane Wilton (Diana Churchill) has always lived in the shadow of her beautiful and popular sister Beatrice (Jean Muir). Making things worse, Beatrice is spiteful and cruel, directing all manner of nastiness towards the supplicative and uncomplaining Jane. But when Beatrice sets her cap for Jane's erstwhile boy friend Basil Gilbert (Peter Murray Hill), she goes a shade too far. For once, the worm turns, and Jane fights tooth and nail to win her man back. This amiable retelling of the Cinderella legend is helped along by the presence of such seasoned British supporting players as Athene Seyler and Fred Emney.
