It was an open secret in Hollywood that actress Lilyan Tashman preferred the company of women to men. Who better, then, to play the man-hating heroine in The Woman Who Did Not Care? The daughter of a boarding house keeper, Iris Carroll (Tashman) is subjected to the unwanted advances of her mother's boarders. When mom dies, Iris kicks over the traces, moves out of town, buys a gorgeous wardrobe and sets about to "get even" with the entire male population. At one point, she has both an elderly millionaire and the millionaire's son dangling at her fingertips. Ultimately, however, Iris succumbs to romance when she's "tamed" by woman-hating sea captain Gregory Payne (Philo McCullough).
