Summary
"Platinum blonde is a glorious spoof of the newspaper business in New York City during the Depression; Ann Schuyler, a wealthy socialite, meets reporter "Stew" Smith and the two fall madly in love. The comedy begins as she tries to transform him from a ruffian newsman into a convincing gentleman."--Container
