Academy Award winner Katharine Hepburn stars as a woman on the verge of becoming a spinster who becomes trapped by her own elaborate ruse to win the heart of the man she loves in Quality Street. Phoebe Throssel (Hepburn) was heartbroken when Dr. Valentine Brown (Franchot Tone) left her to fight the army of Napoleon, and Phoebe has remained in love and single waiting for him. But when Dr. Brown returns after ten years and inadvertently humiliates her with a comment on her appearance, Phoebe changes her hair and buys a new gown. And when Dr. Brown then mistakes Phoebe for her younger niece, Livvy, she does not correct him and proceeds to woo the man she loves in her new identity. But when Dr. Brown confesses to 'Livvy' that he loves Phoebe, she must find a way to tell the doctor the truth.
