This playful Allan Dwan effort stars Olive Borden as impulsive flapper Jewel Courage, who dumps the man she loves, a humble chauffeur (Jimmy Grainger Jr.) in favor of millionaire John Jeffrey Fleet (Neil Hamilton). Jewel soon discovers that Fleet is actually the chauffeur and her ex-beau is the millionaire; the two merely traded places for a lark. Briefly taken aback, Jewel decides to prove that she, too, can changes her spots, and before long she has become a wealthy Bodaceia of Big Business. Stills from The Joy Girl suggest that the film's principal selling angle was the stunning beauty of Olive Borden, who appeared in a variety of revealing outfits. A lengthy Technicolor sequence allowed the viewer several tantalizing glimpses of Palm Beach, Florida, vintage 1927.
