Synopsis by Janiss Garza
In this witty comedy -- an adaptation of Cyril Harcourt's play -- Constance Talmadge plays a writer who runs a lonely hearts ad in order to get material for a novel she's working on. Her ad is answered by a large group of odd personalities. Not so odd is Harrison Ford, and he wins the novelist's heart. Zasu Pitts, whose career was just getting off the ground, has a small role of the maid Emily. With a broad sense of the ridiculous and very little subtlety, A Lady's Name is played purely for fun. It was the kind of movie in which Constance Talmadge excelled.
