Directed by the unjustly forgotten John H. Collins, Opportunity starred Collins' wife Viola Dana as Mary Willard, a physical culturalist and diehard sports fan. Denied permission to attend a boxing match, Mary borrows her brother's clothes and goes to the bout disguised as a boy. Seated next to her is Anthony Fry (Hale Hamilton), who fancies himself a "master of human destiny." To prove his theory that any man can be transformed into an overnight success, Fry "adopts" the male-garbed Mary and proceeds to drill her in the noble art of getting ahead in business. Meanwhile, Mary's wealthy father assumes that his daughter has been kidnapped and alerts the cops. Things aren't straightened out until Mary herself (or is it "himself"?) takes control of the situation.
