In this film, adapted from an O. Henry story, Corinne Griffith plays vaudeville performer Rosalie Ray who, at the climax of her act, swings over the audience and kicks off a garter. But she is unhappy with this line of work and with the lusty men she encounters. So she tells her manager, Brad Mortimer (Earl Metcalf), that she's quitting and leaves the city. Rosalie ends up in a small town, singing in the church choir and finding the quiet life more her speed. She falls in love with the minister, Arthur Lyle (future silent screen heartthrob Rod LaRocque) and they become engaged. But she finds out that he is no different from the stage door Johnnies of the big city, so she dumps him and returns to Mortimer.
