Ann Sothern is a magazine model looking for a rich husband. Wealthy Gene Raymond attends a photo shoot; Sothern mistakes him for a male model and resists his advances. Eventually she falls for Raymond and decides to cease her search for quick wealth. The story resolves itself in a fast-moving hotel lobby climax, with misunderstandings piling up like dirty laundry. Smartest Girl in Town was one of Ann Sothern's shortest vehicles, zipping along at a mere 57 minutes but still getting top-of-the-bill bookings.
