Small time mores were satirized in this low-budget comedy-drama from poverty row company Gotham Productions. Claire Windsor played Bonnie Clinton, an enterprising girl who opens a beauty parlor in the village of Clinton Harbor. In an effort to drum up business, the girl bleaches her hair, much to the dismay of the Ladies' Aid Society. But when society hostess Caroline Bennett (Bodil Rosing) includes Bonnie on her guest-list, business starts to pick up, much to the chagrin of crooked businessman Benjamin Flint (Leigh Willard) and his snobbish daughter Olga (Bess Flowers). The Danish-born Bodil Rosing usually played rather dowdy-looking mothers and immigrant women. Her role as society leader in this film was reportedly much closer to the real-life Miss Rosing, the mother-in-law of Hollywood star Monte Blue and a former socialite in her own right. The on-screen credits for Blonde's By Choice included the unusual occupation of "comedy constructor"!
