Tomboy socialite Theodora Hayden ( May Allison ), known to friends as "Teddy," is an amateur aviatrix and racing car enthusiast. Relishing her freedom, Teddy spurns lawyer Gerry Rhinelander West ( Wallace MacDonald ), her childhood sweetheart, and runs away to Greenwich Village. There she meets model Ruby Joyce ( Ruth Stonehouse ) and Ruby's lover, boxer "Gunboat" Dorgan ( Emanuel Turner ). She becomes the student of portraitist Raoul Uhlan ( Lester Cuneo ), who tries to make love to her. Infuriated by the artist's audacity, Teddy has him beaten by Gunboat, who misinterprets her gratitude. Gunboat kisses Teddy, who repulses him, then borrows her car and strikes another auto. After tracing the car to its owner through the license plate number, the driver of the injured vehicle sues Teddy. Raoul then sues Teddy for injuries inflicted by Gunboat; and Ruby sues her for alienation of Gunboat's affection. When her family refuses to help her, Teddy turns to Gerry, who settles the suits and wins her hand.
This 1920 comedy/drama/romance was based on the the short story "The Waffle Iron" by Arthur Stringer, produced by the Metro Pictures Corporation, starring the popular silent screen actress, May Allison. The survival status of Are All Men Alike? is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
