Gladys Walton plays an inept newspaper reporter in this mediocre farce comedy. Leslie Adams (Walton) is secretary to the city editor of a newspaper, but she longs to write. She begs her boss for a chance, so he sends her out to cover a crowd of society people who throw wild parties. Her assignment takes her to the home of an author who goes by a nom de plume. Unfortunately, in her attempt to be creative, Leslie gets all her facts wrong. She has the writer (Robert Ellis) pegged as the man who is having an affair with the married Blanche Cartwright (Dolores Revier). The result is a libel suit against the paper. The furious city editor threatens to fire Leslie unless she can prove her story is true. Her attempts end up in the usual farcical fare -- various people in pajamas making quick entrances and exits, with general mayhem ensuing. Leslie fails at her mission, but it doesn't matter since she ends up winning the writer.
