Marie Prevost got her start as a Mack Sennett bathing beauty, and even though this romantic comedy runs rather short for a feature, it's still only got about enough plot for a two-reeler. Spunky Constance Keener (Prevost) and her mother (Lillian Langdon) don't see eye to eye on matters of romance. Mrs. Keener has chosen rich Merton Torrey (J. Frank Glendon) to marry her daughter, who doesn't think he's dashing enough for her. When she attends a masquerade ball and is kissed by a costumed stranger, she thinks he's the one she wants. So she elopes with Dr. Sherman Moss (Lloyd Whitlock), who she believes is the stranger. But on the way to their honeymoon, he kisses her and she realizes he's the wrong man. The train gets held up by a bandit who apparently has only one purpose -- to tear up Moss's marriage license and to kidnap Constance. The bandit turns out to be Torrey -- the same man who kissed her at the ball. Since he's a lot more dashing than she originally thought (not to mention such a good kisser), the end is easily imagined.
