May Allison stars as a worker in a shirt factory who begins fantasizing about the sort of man who would wear a "Size 44." Hoping to attract a husband, she attaches her address to a shipment of "44's" destined for Arizona. The shipment is misdelivered to handsome young millionaire Harold Lockwood, who decides it would be good for a laugh to seek out the idealistic Allison. Though they despise each other on sight, Allison and Lockwood decide to stick together anyway, whereupon the inevitable occurs, and they fall in love -- but not before our hero has defended the girl's honor by pummeling the villain into senselessness. The May Allison-Harold Lockwood combination was popular enough to survive even such empty nonsense as Mister 44.
