Orchids and Ermine is the story of a girl who loves and wants both from her husband. "Pink" Watson (Colleen Moore) refuses the love of a working class man for the dream of wealth and prosperity. She wins a job as a telephone operator in a ritzy hotel simply because she is not overdone. There she meets Ermintrude (Gwen Lee), a gold digger who only appears to be more successful than Pink. The two become part of a trick among a very wealthy man and his valet. Richard Tabor (Jack Milhall) is a meek, intellectual type which is probably why he is a millionaire. To avoid being swarmed by gold diggers, he switches identities with his valet Hank (Sam Hardy) who gladly parades his "wealth" around. In the process he meets Pink who falls for him despite his money and becomes the victim of various mishaps due to the switch.

This is yet another silly film starring Moore, but a good one. She's a lot of fun in her comic role. Milhall is great too, very reminiscent of Harold Lloyd's bashful character. Also making an appearance is Mickey Rooney, a seven year old playing a sophisticated midget. You'd never guess it was him by his looks, but his acting ability is apparent even at this early stage.
