The popular of European film star Dolly Davis was reflected in the title of this 1928 vehicle. Davis plays a wealthy young girl who falls for an equally wealthy gentleman named Robert (Andre Roanne). The hero, however, prefers the company of Dolly's fun-loving stepmother. Refusing to grasp the obvious, Dolly assumes that the gentleman's attentions are levelled at her and acts accordingly. Misunderstanding the situation, Dolly's dad orders Robert to marry the girl, at which point Robert reveals that he is far more interested in the step-mom. Heartbroken, Dolly decides to get even with the world by becoming a "loose woman" -- which instantly wins her Robert's love!
