Margery (Margarita Fisher) decides to form a partnership with her friend Franklyn Smith, a struggling attorney (Jack Mower). The company is called "Beauty to Let," with Margery as the sole worker: She leases herself out as a date for rich men who want a pretty girl to escort for the evening (this being the 1910s, she is accompanied by a chaperone -- the always amusing Kate Price). Business is booming, but finally two men take up most of Margery's time -- Henry Rockwell (J. Norris Foster) and "Diamond Tim" Moody (Wedgwood Nowell). Both want to marry her, yet -- predictably -- Margery has fallen in love with Franklyn. Franklyn has no clue, however, blithely giving her Rockwell's proposal while bragging to her about his own new bachelor quarters -- which of course will not do, and Margery spends the rest of the picture getting Franklyn to wake up and marry her. This mildly amusing story was originally a novel, Beauty to Let, by Fred Jackson.
