This fast-paced but undistinguished farce was Laura La Plante's second starring vehicle for Universal. Colonel Faraday (Arthur Hoyt) is a henpecked husband whose ill-tempered wife (Margaret Campbell) is a reformer. He manages to get himself vamped by Yvette (Eve Southern), who threatens to create a scandal with the love letters he has written her. In a panic, he asks his daughter, Diana (La Plante), to help him out. Diana flirts with Yvette's partner, Gerald Skinner (Philo McCullough), and gets the letters. Her college sweetheart, Royal Randall (Edward Hearn), jealously refuses to believe her explanations and hands the letters back to Yvette. When he finally figures out that Diana is trying to save her father, he convinces Yvette to give up the letters by claiming that Skinner has double-crossed her. Faraday makes his wife believe that he thoroughly disapproves of Randall as a mate for Diana; since she never agrees with him on anything, Mrs. Faraday is more than happy to give the match her blessings.
