Previously teamed in such boudoir farces as Up in Mabel's Room and The Girl and the Pullman, Marie Prevost and the "original" Harrison Ford are again co-starred in The Rush Hour. Tired of the hustle and bustle of urban life, working girl Margie Dolan (Marie Prevost) stows away on a France-bound luxury liner. After several standard "shipboard" gags, she finds herself on the Riviera, where she gets mixed up with a gang of con artists who hope to fleece oil tycoon William Finch (David Butler). Once she's extricated herself from this little entanglement, Margie is only too happy to return to the arms of her "dull" sweetie Dan Morely (Harrison Ford). The supporting cast of Rush Hour includes Seena Owen, best known for her work as "The Princess Beloved" in D.W. Griffith's Intolerance (1916).
