Lawyer Wyn Huntley (Jack Mulhall) is a lion in the courtroom, but a lamb when it comes to women. In love with the beautiful but financially irresponsible Lil (Sally Starr), Wyn is advised that the way to Lil's heart is to indulge her every extravagance. Unfortunately, the man offering this advice is one of Lil's disgruntled ex-boyfriends. Eventually, Lil comes to her senses and begins behaving more responsibly, proving her new level-headedness by rescuing Wyn from a compromising situation with predatory blonde Eleanor Cartwright (Margaret Livingston). Not much of a film to begin with, For the Love O' Lil was laid low by careless post-production sound editing, often cutting off the actors in mid-sentence.
