When Charles Ray started taking control of his career, he tried -- unsuccessfully -- to steer his roles away from the "rube" parts which made him famous. In this light comedy, which he directed himself, he plays Richard Morgan, who has decided to become a struggling artist, much to the chagrin of his rich aunt (Florence Oberle). Betty Plimpton, Morgan's childhood sweetheart (Jean Calhoun), shows up after several years away at school, and he doesn't recognize her. In fact, he mistakes her for a model answering his ad, and she decides to go along with his assumption. When the painting is done, Richard and his artist friend Benny Fielding (Harry Myers) plan to attend a fancy reception, but they have only one invitation and one frock coat between them. They alternate appearances at the party with the coat until their suspicious actions start causing trouble. Eventually Morgan finds out who Betty really is, and they take up where they left off in childhood.
