Rings on Her Fingers is a 1942 American screwball comedy film directed by Rouben Mamoulian and starring Henry Fonda and Gene Tierney. The screenplay concerns a poor man who gets mistaken for a millionaire and is swindled out of his life savings.

Plot

Susan Miller (Gene Tierney) works as a girdle salesgirl in a big department store. She dreams of living on "the other side", among the rich. An elderly woman, calling herself Mrs. Maybelle Worthington (Spring Byington), comes to buy some underwear. She is actually a professional swindler. Her partner Warren (Laird Cregar) meets her at the department store, and reports that her "daughter" (a partner in their schemes) has run away to get married. They notice that Susan resembles the "daughter", and ask her to impersonate the missing girl at their party that evening. Susan sees an opportunity to experience life among the rich, and wear the expensive clothes she could never afford.
