Marion Davies, who'd coincidentally later star in Cain and Mabel, is top-billed in Adam and Eva. Adam Smith (T. ROY BARNES) is appointed head of the business owned by Eva's (Marion Davies) wealthy father. It is hoped that the personable Adam will be able to curb Eva's impulsiveness and tendency to spend money faster than her dad can earn it. Adam hits upon the strategy of telling Eva that her father has gone broke. It is at this point that the girl proves she's a good egg after all by going to work to support her "destitute" dad. Adam and Eva had all the ingredients for success, but it was sabotaged by the publicity overkill generated by Marion Davies' "sponsor", publisher William Randolph Hearst.
