This Madge Kennedy vehicle has but the barest wisp of a plot: Mary Meacham (Kennedy) is a college miss who flirts with every man in town. Her "baby vamp" routine fells the Glee club, the lawyer who holds the mortgage on her aunt's home, and a good number of young men, eligible and not-so-hot. Naturally the one man who she really loves, Morgan Smith (George Forth) is impervious to her charms. But before the final fadeout, they are firmly united. This picture was apparently shot quite a while before it was released -- the women's outfits are a bit dated for 1921. Crediting Rupert Hughes for the witty titles is the real giveaway -- by the time this film came out, Hughes had soared far beyond mere title writing and had become a respected writer and director in his own right.
