Winsome Lois Wilson stars as The Gingham Girl in this cinemadaptation of the popular musical comedy of the same name. Wilson plays Mary Thompson, the sweetheart of small-town wise guy Johnny Cousins (George K. Arthur). Hoping to strike it rich, Johnny heads for the Big City, while the more level-headed Mary opts to remain in her own back yard. Starting a cookie-baking operation in her kitchen, Mary's burgeoning business is financed by city slicker Pat O'Day (Charles B. Crockett), who has designs on our heroine. Meanwhile, Johnny returns home, evidently having failed to make a dent in New York. In an astonishing and thoroughly unbelievable climactic twist, Johnny turns out to be a representative for a big-time cookie manufacturer, who offers Mary an enormous amount of money to sell her business. She does, whereupon Mary and Johnny settle down for a blissful -- and wealthy -- marriage.
