Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Snobbish socialite Gail Grant (Florence Vidor) is accustomed to getting everything she wants. Thus, when she storms into a Venetian antique shop and announces her intention of buying a rare tapestry to transform into a gown, she fully expects the staff to grovel at her feet. Instead, the owner of the shop refuses to sell her the tapestry at any price. Little does Gail suspect that the shop owner is actually Prince Danitari (Tullio Carminatti), whose war debts have forced him to go into the antique business. Though Gail walks out of the shop in a huff, the Prince is fascinated by her, thus he hires himself out as her tour guide, with the intention of pulling a "taming of the shrew" act. Ultimately, Gail and the Prince are married -- but who ends up taming whom?
