Man Crazy is the rather blatant title of this cinemadaptation of Clarissa and the Post Road, a novel by Grace Sartwell Mason. Dorothy Mackaill stars as romantically reckless Clarissa Janeway, the bane of her conservative parents' existence. To keep Clarissa out of trouble, her folks plot to marry her off to Van Beamer (Walter McGrail), a respectable young man from a good family. But Clarissa is in love with truck driver Jeffrey Pell (Jack Mulhall), and when she gets wind of her parents' plans, she talks Jeffrey into eloping with her. The couple is detained by a gang of bootleggers who hijack Jeffrey's truck. After gaining her parents' respect by capturing the crooks, Clarissa is allowed to marry Jeffrey -- who, as luck would have it, turns out to be from a wealthy and well-established family himself!
