Once again, Constance Talmadge appears in a film written by John Emerson and Anita Loos -- the combination of star and writer usually turned out a good light comedy. Talmadge plays a character familiar to her fans, the flirtatious heiress. In this instance her name is Patricia Stanhope, and every man within a hundred yards of her falls hard for her, even her professor at school. Patricia gets engaged about every five minutes or so, to her school chum Billy Carmichael (Ray Hallor), Tom Morton (John Harron), whom she meets on a train, and the aristocratic Lord Copperfield (Byron Munson). These suitors, and several others, have to take a back seat, however, when Patricia finally meets her guardian, attorney Scott Warner (Antonio Moreno). She immediately falls in love with the handsome young lawyer who, much to her surprise, refuses to have anything to do with her. Of course this makes her work all the harder to land him. Finally she manages to spend the night at his apartment and they have to wed to avoid a scandal. Warner still keeps his distance until he is sure that Patricia is ready to settle down.
