The satirically titled A Damsel in Distress stars the ebullient June Caprice. On vacation with her family, June falls in love with her tour guide. Ordered by her parents to remain in her hotel room, Caprice escapes for a rendezvous with her boyfriend. Instead, she makes the acquaintance of London playwright Creighton Hale, who turns out to be just the right man for her. A Damsel in Distress was based on a story by P.G. Wodehouse, later adapted into the 1937 Fred Astaire vehicle of the same name.
