Also known as Harmony at Home, She Steps Out was based on The Family Upstairs, a play by Harry Dell. William Collier Sr. stars as a well-meaning patriarch who is forced by circumstance to run a sweatshop. Meanwhile, Collier's garrulous wife Elizabeth Patterson unintentionally scares off Rex Bell, the blue-collar fiance of her daughter Marguerite Churchill. Good ol' pop steps in to reunite Bell and Churchill and to tell Patterson in as nice a way as possible to shut her big yap. Inasmuch as William Collier Sr. was a screenwriter and dialogue director at Fox Studios, one suspects that he penned his own lines in She Steps Out.
