Synopsis by Janiss Garza

Miss Hobbs (Wanda Hawley, in her first leading role) is a wealthy young lady with advanced ideas. In 1920, that meant that she liked barefoot dancing, modern art, and that she hated men. She is so persuasive that she inspires one friend to leave her husband and the other to break her engagement. It's a foregone conclusion that someone of the masculine gender will come along and give Miss Hobbs her comeuppance. But instead of playing macho, Wolff Kingsearl (Harrison Ford), pretends to be an invalid and brings out the lady's very-latent maternal instincts. This lightweight comedy was based on the play by Jerome K. Jerome.
