This film marked a turn in the life and career of Viola Dana. Its scenario was being prepared by her husband, director John Collins, just before a brief illness resulted in his death. The character Dana portrays here, Diana Ardway, takes a wide left turn from her former, meeker roles. Diana is a feisty, untamed creature, kind of a cross between Constance Talmadge and Dorothy Gish. She has her cap set for playwright Paul Worden (Milton Sills), but he only sees her as a silly, unruly child. This, naturally, does not sit well with Diana, and she uses all her wiles to make Worden see her as a woman. This playful comedy added new dimensions to the types of roles Dana played.
