During the Great Depression, society matron Millicent Jordan has bigger problems: she is planning a dinner and Lord and Lady Ferncliff have just accepted. As her daughter Paula's romantic complications mount and her search for an "extra man" to complement former stage star Carlotta Vance proves fruitless, the lady and all her guests are caught in a roundelay of wealth, loss, love, betrayal and the disintegration of the accepted social order. This stage hit originally opened on Broadway in 1932, became a classic MGM film and was later revived at New York's Lincoln Center in 2003 to great acclaim.
