The vastly underrated William A. Seiter was the director of the frothy Gay and Devilish. Doris May plays Fanchon Browne, a poor girl about to enter into a marriage of convenience with wealthy old Peter Armitage (Otis Harlan). When she falls in love with Armitage's handsome nephew Peter (Cullen Landis), Fanchon is in quite a quandary. She asks her vampish friend Lilah Deane (Jacqueline Logan) to "steal" Peter away from her, but Lilah makes a mistake and woos the susceptible Peter. Numerous other comic complications ensue before the film's multiple-marriage finale.
