Wisecracking Public Stenographer Ann McNair (Lola Lane) spends most of her time fending off the Roamin' Fingers and Rushin' Hands of her employers. En route to another job, Ann's car stalls on a lonely stretch of road. She is rescued by handsome Jim Martin (William Collier Jr.), who at first behaves as boorishly as all the other men in Ann's life. Eventually, however, Jim falls genuinely in love with Ann, permitting her at long last to drop her hard-boiled veneer. Esther Muir, best remembered as the "wallpapered woman" in the Marx Bros.' A Day at the Races, steals the show as the heroine's best pal.
