A stage play by Gladys Ungar was the source for Fox's Two Girls Wanted. In her first above-the-title starring role, Janet Gaynor is cast as Marianna Miller, who together with her sister Sarah (Marie Mosquini) pounds the pavements, looking for a job. After a period of starvation and deprivation -- through which both girls smile inanely -- Marianna is hired as secretary to duplicitous businessman Philip Hancock (Joseph Cawthorn). Upon falling in love with Hancock's young rival Dexter Wright (Glenn Tryon), our heroine sets about to warn Wright about a crooked business deal cooked up by Hancock. In a reversal of expectations, it is the heroine who rescues the hero when the chips are down in the last reel.
