The Studio Girl was the film version of the 1911 Billie Burke stage vehicle The Runaway. The original play's French locale was changed to New England, where Celia Laird (Constance Talmadge) resides with her two overprotective aunts. When artist Frazer Ordway (Earle Foxe) arrives in town, he falls in love with Celia -- much to the dismay of the aunts, who'd intended the girl to marry a local millionaire. Inasmuch as Frazer has his own romantic cross to bear in the form of his possessive fiance Adriana Peroni (Edna Earle), he and Celia decide that it might be best to go their own separate ways. But this proves impossible when the heroine inadvertently boards the wrong train and, with comparable guilelessness, ends up in Frazer's New York apartment. The film's climactic rainstorm was obviously shot during an actual deluge, which somehow enhanced its comic impact.
