Even people as talented as scenarists Anita Loos and John Emerson and film star Constance Talmadge had their off days, as this picture illustrated. Mary Blake (Talmadge) can charm any man, young or old, with her winning ways -- except for the one she really wants. James Stanhope (Charles Meredith) is a misogynist who won't give her the time of day. During her various attempts to get Stanhope's attention, Mary gets tangled up with a group of anarchists and by the end of the picture, the bad guys are down for the count and Stanhope has finally fallen in love. The one saving grace of this picture was Loos' always-witty subtitles.
