Writer Julia Crawford Ivers penned a story that was a perfect fit for playful silent star Constance Talmadge. Talmadge is Geraldine Barker who has become engaged to Reginald Crocker (Stanhope Wheatcroft) mainly because all the girls want him. But it turns out he's not such a great catch -- one day while they're out on a drive, Geraldine finds a gray veil in his pocket...and gray is not her color. It doesn't take her long to find out that its owner is Mademoiselle Hortense, the owner of a beauty salon. While Geraldine is stewing over her faithless fiancé, she meets Richard Annesly (Harrison Ford), a friend of her brother's. The priggish Richard immediately makes it known that he would never tolerate lies or thievery from a woman, and that he would never, ever elope. Since this is a Constance Talmadge film, we all know that before the final fade-out, the guy will have lied for her, taken responsibility for a theft she committed and begged her to elope with him. And since Harrison Ford is playing Richard Annesly, we also know that once Constance's Geraldine has gotten Richard a bit loosened up, she'll dump two-timing Reginald in no time flat.
