Nancy Welford, a minor musical-comedy lead of the early 1930s, plays the title role in this Chesterfield Studios quickie. Welford is cast as department-store model Patricia Murray, the sweetheart of wealthy Herbert Carter (Jason Robards Sr.) The hero's class-conscious mother (Dorothy Phillips) wants nothing to do with Patricia, insisting that Herbert marry socialite Mildred Vane (Myrna Loy). Some four reels later, Herbert grows a backbone and walks out on Mildred in favor of Patricia. At the bottom of the cast list of Jazz Cinderella is hefty June Gittelson, best known for her appearances opposite the equally chubby Curly Howard in Columbia's Three Stooges comedies.
