Ellie May Adams (Ginger Rogers) lives with her dysfunctional family in a rundown home on Primrose Hill. Hoping not to become a prostitute like her mother (Marjorie Rambeau) and grandmother (Queenie Vassar), Ellie fights to keep her dignity by marrying the charming Ed Wallace (Joel McCrea) and lying about her embarrassing relatives. But Ellie's lies backfire when Ed finally meets the family, and she realizes that she may have to become a prostitute after all.

Audience Reviews for Primrose Path

  • Aug 12, 2012
    An old movie on TV during Ginger Rogers movie day. Not at all like her normal dance-with-Fred-Astaire type movies. She plays a young woman who manages to pull herself out of her circumstances only to be dragged back down again. It is hard to believe that such an innocuous movie would have affected the sensibilities off the 1940's censor boards.
