Louise Lorraine stars as a fashion model who takes a job with government agent Lou Tellegen. At least, he says he's with the government; actually, he's a jewel thief who hopes to utilize Lorraine's charm to gain access to a valuable gem. Meanwhile, another crook, Ward Crane, has his eyes on the jewels. At least, he says he's a crook....yeh, that's right. He isn't. Borrowed Finery was directed byOscar Apfel, who in 1914 collaborated with Cecil B. DeMille on the direction of The Squaw Man, the first feature film made in Hollywood.
