Dorothy Mackaill has been raised by her embittered mother to despise all men. A beautiful gal, Mackaill can't help but attract the opposite sex. To counteract her appeal, she dresses in a dowdy, masculine fashion (funny, this had the opposite effect for Annie Hall in 1977). Gossips suggest that Mackaill is a you-know-what, so she enters into a platonic relationship with writer Rockliffe Fellowes. But since Jack Mulhall is in the cast of The Crystal Cup, and since Mackaill and Mulhall were a popular screen romantic team of the era, audiences were well prepared for the film's outcome.
