Marion Davies cannot stand her stuffy step father Frederick Burton (I), but finds herself even worse off when he dies and leaves his fortune to her on condition that she live with his brother Elmer Grandin for a year without marrying so she will become a lady. Elmer Grandin, his wife Amelia Summerville, and daughter Constance Beaumar make it tough on Marion Davies so they can inherit the money, but she catches the eye of eligible bachelor Norman Kerry.
Anita Loos' titles cannot save a dumb story and ordinary acting.
