Figures Don't Lie is a showcase for the physical charms of lovely Esther Ralston, who in one scene proves the accuracy of the title by donning a fetching one-piece bathing suit. The main story concerns wise-guy insurance salesman Richard Arlen, who through a combination of hard work and sheer gall lands a job as sales manager. But he can't land heroine Ralston, who has remained cool to his charms ever since he tried to make a play for her on the street. Eventually, she forgives him, but not before Arlen saves his boss Ford Sterling from financial ruin. An existing still from Figures Don't Lie shows Esther Ralston posing with Olympic swimming star Johnny Weissmuller, who otherwise did not appear in the picture.
