Kansas City Princess is a 1934 American film starring Joan Blondell and Glenda Farrell. The two were informally teamed in four Warner Brothers comedies in the early 1930s, as wisecracking, fast-talking, practical-minded working-class girls hunting for husbands. In this entry, they play manicurists from Kansas City. Rosie (Blondell) loses an expensive ring that her gangster boyfriend gave her, so they flee to Paris. The other three films in which Blondell and Farrell co-starred were Havana Widows, We're in the Money, and Miss Pacific Fleet. (They also both appeared, but are not teamed, in Gold Diggers of 1937, I've Got Your Number, and Traveling Saleslady.)
