Vivacious Marie Prevost starred in this pleasant little Universal comedy about a flirt who stages moonlight dances at her father's country estate in order to provoke eligible men to fall in love with her. The girl's irate father (Lionel Belmore) demands that she find herself a decent husband, and to spite him she chooses a well-known misogynist (George Fillmore). But when the man duly proposes, Prevost loses her nerve and turns him down. He abducts her instead, and the two opposites learn to love each other in a secluded mountain cabin. A former Mack Sennett "Bathing Beauty," Marie Prevost starred in a series of lightweight comedies in the 1920s. A weight problem curtailed her starring career at the advent of sound and she died in a state of extreme poverty in January of 1937.
