Hot on the heels of his Not for Publication, the ineluctable Ralph Ince once more performed double duty as star and director of Columbia's The Better Way. Dorothy Revier plays the plain-Jane stenographer of handsome, skirt-chasing stockbroker Armand Kaliz. While her boss won't give her a tumble, Revier is worshipped from afar by meek bookkeeper Ralph Ince. Upon collecting a huge sum of money on a stock tip, our heroine visits the local cosmetician and emerges a ravishing beauty. Naturally, her previously blasé boss takes an interest in Revier, but now she won't have anything to do with him. In retaliation, the broker gives her a bum tip, certain that the girl will lose all her money. But Ince rescues Revier from this fate, winning her heart in the process.
