The night-time soaps should look so good! Plain Peggy Drab, whose nose is a rival to Pinocchio's, is desperately in love with handsome Rake Carbuncle, but his social dragon of a mother has arranged his marriage to Clover, the snooty heiress.
Weary of rejection, Little Peggy sells matches in the street until she has enough money - $1,750,000.00 - to pay world-famous plastic surgeon, Dr. Armour Balducci. Peggy turns into glamorous Destiny Mink in a scene that will have audience howling at the absolute improbability of it all!
Balducci marries her and promptly (and conveniently) drops dead. Destiny claws her way to the top of corporate America, wreaking havoc on those who scorned her when she was little Peggy Drab. Madcap complications abound!
This inspired spoof is designed so that a few actors can play several zany roles, from a snarling servant to a love-crazed gypsy violinist. Ultimately, of course, Destiny finds her true self, and discovers that Rake has always loved her.
