The Story behind “Born Yesterday”
“Born Yesterday” is the story of Harry Brock, a big-mouthed businessman who is headed to Washington D.C. to bribe some congressmen into legislation that will be favorable for his business. He takes his showgirl girlfriend, Billie, along for the ride, but quickly realizes she doesn’t have the brains for the D.C. culture.
To help Billie adjust to Washington’s society circles, Brock hires journalist Paul Verrall to train her. As Billie learns more about the workings of politics and high society, she begins to see her boyfriend for what he truly is, and she goes to work to thwart Brock’s plans.
