Marshall Ruth in False Pretenses

False Pretenses

1935 NR

Determined to rise above her station in life, pretty waitress Mary Beekman (Irene Ware) persuades high-rolling millionaire Ken Alden (Sidney Blackmer) to help her find a rich husband. With Alden as her accomplice, Mary disguises herself as the daughter of a wealthy man and crashes a high society party, where she sets her sights on the worldly Pat Brennan (Russell Hopkin). Little does she know that he may not be everything he claims to be.
