Character actor Alan Hale served as director on behalf of producer Cecil B. DeMille of the minor domestic drama Risky Business. Spoiled-rotten socialite Cecily (Vera Reynolds) is being groomed by her mother Mrs. Strouds (Ethel Clayton) for a wealthy marriage to handsome Harold (Ward Crane). But Cecily has eyes only for poor-but-honest country doctor Ted (Kenneth Thomson). Hoping to disillusion her daughter, Mrs. Strouds arranges for Cecily to witness first-hand the trials and tribulations of life as the spouse of a busy general practitioner. The plan succeeds, and Cecily agrees to marry Harold after all. Shortly afterward, however, a child who has been run over by callous Harold's speeding roadster is saved from the jaws of death by the dedicated Dr. Ted. Realizing at last that Ted is the right man for her, Cecily gives Harold the heave-ho and marries the marvelous medico.
