Featuring Ann Reviere, and Bette Davis, who tells about some of the awards this film recieved. Produced for radio, it’s a story set in New Orleans in the dangerous days of the Civil War. Unmarried girls were expected to sit around in white at parties. Unruly women were soundly whipped, then lavished with gifts to make it all right again. That’s the problem with this generation, they don’t know how to properly treat women… huh? Wow, glad society outgrew that one.
Fortunately, Miss Julie Marsden’s ward isn’t so harsh on her, but she’s still a handful in her rebellious ways. High society parties, ball gowns, and a beau who is called out to fulfill other obligations all complicate her life.
The near by sounds of war, and a year later find Julie in a melanchollie mood, and hating the circumstances of her life. Will her beau return to her the same man? All except for the fact he got married in his absence. Is it too late to try to win his heart? Julie is determined to make him forget all others but her.
Plague sweeps through the city, and Julie manipulates anyone she can to cause her own brand of trouble. Menfolk satisfy their pride with duals with pistols. Despite her efforts, it only drives the wedge deeper in her relationship, and puts more distance between her and the man she loves. Amy faces Julie to get to the bottom of who Presley actually loves. Will there be any resolution?
