The Clara Bow vehicle Three Week Ends was based on a story by Elinor Glyn, the romance novelist who bestowed the "It Girl" title upon the saucer-eyed Bow. Seeing hero James Gordon (Neil Hamilton) driving around in an expensive, custom-built Hispano Suiza automobile, heroine Gladys O'Brien (Bow) naturally assumes that Gordon is rich. What she doesn't know is that Gordon is a low-paid insurance salesman, who was driving his boss' car while running an errand. Meanwhile, millionaire Turner (Harrison Ford) develops a yearning for Gladys and invites her to a weekend party, for purposes of you-know-what. Capriciously hiding the girl's clothes while she takes a swim, Turner is about to move in for the moment of truth when she is rescued by the timely arrival of Gordon, who'd come to the Turner mansion to make a sale. Not surprisingly, Gordon fails to collect his commission, but he does end up with Gladys as his bride.
