It seems that she is an actress and is also trying to make it on Broadway.
He tries to re-establish his relationship with her while also trying to hide the fact that she is his daughter from the press. Stahl commendably engineers this well-designed screen play revolving around a striving young actress who clings with hope onto a "Letter of Introduction" to present to a veteran theatrical star.
In conjunction with a "visiting card" or "calling card," a letter of introduction would play an important role in the social graces of yesteryear, as one would not interact socially with an individual of distinction, without having been introduced by a peer who shares a connection with either party.

Katherine ' Kay' Martin (Andrea Leeds) and Edgar Bergen (Edgar Bergen as Himself) pace through the outdoor celebration to witness a stream of smoke's billowing from their residence apartment building.
When Edgar defies guards to rush onto his cement staircase and into the building, Katherine pleads with him to salvage a folder in her bureau of drawers.
