Young and Beautiful is a 1934 American romantic comedy film directed by Joseph Santley and starring William Haines and Judith Allen. The screenplay concerns a press agent who goes to great lengths to make his actress girlfriend a star, only to risk losing her in the process.



In Hollywood, press agent Robert Preston gets into trouble with his boss, Herman Cline, head of Superba Pictures, for neglecting his duties in order to publicize the 13 WAMPUS Baby Stars, June Dale in particular, at a banquet in their honor. However, he sweet talks Mrs. Cline and keeps his job. June shows up and faints, shaken by a failed abduction attempt. It turns out to be a publicity stunt concocted by Preston for his fiancée.
