Maria Maretti ( Bebe Daniels ), a manicurist in the beauty shop of a large metropolitan hotel, is engaged to Antonio Luca ( Edmund Burns ), an electrician who operates a small radio repair business. At the hotel, Maria meets James Morgan ( Hale Hamilton ), a wealthy guest who, when Maria will not go out with him, sends her ten dollars for theater tickets. Over Antonio's objections, Maria does not return the money, instead she and Antonio go to a play. After the performance, Antonio is too stingy to hire a taxi, and while he is chasing his hat down a windy street, Maria accepts a ride with Morgan. Later, she and Antonio fight, and she goes to Morgan for consolation, belatedly discovering that he is married. Maria reunites Morgan with his wife, then gladly returns to the penitent Antonio.
This 1925 silent romance/drama was produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation and starred popular silent screen actress, Bebe Daniels. Tragically, The Manicure Girl remains a lost film.
