Snappy Bebe Daniels
12 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bebe Daniels stars as Teddy Simpson, a poor little rich girl who is so bored that she calls random numbers in the phone book to vamp the men who answer. Unfortunately, several of the men she has hooked are friends of her fiancée (Jack Holt). When he overhears her phone number being mentioned he informs the men that they are carrying on with his intended bride. They hatch an elaborate plot to teach her a lesson.

Simple plot reaches a satisfactory conclusion in this fast-paced comedy that has star Bebe Daniels parade about in a dozen different outfits as she flits from scene to scene and is especially notable in the sunken bathtub scene (a la Gloria Swanson).

At 33, Holt seems a bit old for 20-year-old Bebe, but handles his role with grace and humor. Mayme Kelso is fun as Aunty Weeks, Bebe's guardian and a prime target of her pranks. Edward Martindel, Wade Boteler, and William Lawrence are the men in her life, and Maurie Newell and Elsie Andrean (each in their only film) are her friends.

Interiors are sumptuous and the lake scenes were filmed at Big Bear Lake in California. The houseboat was built for the movie. There are several scenes where Daniels zooms about in fast cars. In real life, she was ticketed for speeding, spent 10 days in jail in April 1921, and was nicknamed in the press as "the speed girl."
