Set in New York City in 1922, ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’ concerns a young girl, Millie Dillmount, from Kansas who comes to New York City to marry for money instead of love – a thoroughly modern aim in 1922, when women were just entering the workforce. Her grand plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and then marry him. However, her plan goes completely awry. The owner of her dingy hotel kidnaps young girls to sell to the Far East; her wealthy boss is slow in proposing marriage; and the man she actually falls in love with doesn’t have a dime to his name – or so he tells her.
