Goldwyn Studios' favorite leading lady Madge Kennedy plays the title role in Fair Pretender. Kennedy stars as a young woman of modest means, posing as a millionairess in order to attend a hoity-toity society ball, where she hopes to snare a rich husband. Here she meets handsome young Tom Moore, who is likewise impersonating a man of wealth. The two forget their mutual outrage at each other's subterfuge long enough to subdue a German spy (where did he come from?) Despite their reduced circumstances, Kennedy and Moore end up falling in love.
