Before her nasally voice was exposed, making her a more appropriate choice as a working class girl, Marie Prevost achieved stardom by playing young society lovelies. This one, Teddy Marmon, is a party-loving flapper who is loathe to settle down. Two of her suitors are Graham, her father's secretary (Jack Perrin), and Gary McVeigh, the proverbial boy next door -- only wealthy (Robert Ellis). Teddy mischievously plays one against the other, but it is Graham who proposes. He turns out to be a fortune hunter, however, and luckily his true nature is revealed before he can get her to the altar. McVeigh, of course, is the one who turns out to be Mr. Right. He saves her father from bankruptcy and is able to keep a reign on Teddy's perpetual motion and willfulness. It's no surprise when she turns around and proposes to him.
