Avery Hopwood's stage comedy Judy Forgot proved to be a great personal success for actress Marie Cahill, so it was only natural that Cahill would be summoned to Hollywood to repeat her role on the big screen. Judy, a comic-opera star, is a character based loosely on Broadway luminary Cissie Fitzgerald, who was famous for her coquettish wink. In this instance, Judy's winks cause a great deal of trouble for her husband (Sam Hardy), who isn't kindly disposed towards the many young men who are enticed by his wife's optic twitches. Judy promises her husband to stop winking at every man who crosses her path, but while enjoying a vacation in Europe, she forgets her promise all too many times. The film's plotline was loose enough to accommodate a slapstick burglary and a mistaken-identity subplot involving a much-married adventuress.
