Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Constance Bennett, Hollywood's favorite "wronged" heroine, is the star of the misleadingly titled Bought. Thing of it is, Bennett can't be bought by wealthy playboy Ray Milland. Despite dangling all sorts of expensive temptations in front of her, Milland never gets any farther than a one-night stand with the girl. Turning her back on high society, our heroine returns to her tenement apartment and her poverty-stricken sweetheart, author Ben Lyon. One of the attractions of Bought was the rare on-screen teaming of leading-lady Constance Bennett and her father, legendary Broadway star Richard Bennett.
