Synopsis by Hal Erickson
May McAvoy stars as Sallie Smith, a nightclub cigarette girl who falls in love with Bob Ward (Malcolm McGregor), who's working his way through college as a paid escort. Alas, Sally's head is turned by wealthy cad Tom Mannion (Richard Tucker), who lures the girl to a wild weekend party at his Long Island estate. Once he gets her alone on his yacht, Mannion does his best (or worst) to seduce Sally. A convenient storm capsizes the yacht, whereupon Sally is rescued by her ever-loving Bob. Matinee Ladies was among the first directorial efforts of cinematographer Byron Haskin.
