Synopsis by Hal Erickson

In the tradition of Colleen Moore's best films, Her Wild Oat is nowhere near as "naughty" as its title. Moore is cast as Mary Brown, the orphaned owner of a tiny lunch wagon. Carefully salting away her money, Mary hopes to escape her tenement surroundings and take a long vacation. She gets the opportunity when she hires an assistant, handsome Philip Latour (Larry Kent), whom she assumes to be even worse off than she. In truth, Philip is quite wealthy, but out of love for Mary he pretends to be his own chauffeur. Checking out his story, Mary visits the hotel where Philip's "boss" is supposedly staying, only to end up being mistaken for the Duchess of Granville. This results in a ticklish situation involving Philip's flirtatious father, not to mention virtually everyone else in the hotel.
