A case of mistaken identity and crisis of virtue.

Evelyn Laye portrays Lilli, a simple virtuous girl, who masquerades as Fritzi (portrayed by Lilyan Tashman), the notorious showgirl when the later is ordered out of town by the chief of police. Count Mirko (played by the wooden John Boles doing his best Al Gore imitation) comes to town just to make love to Fritzi and is nonplused to find that she does not readily surrender her charms to him. Lilli does her best to carry off the masquerade without losing her virtue to the Count. Leon Errol performs a "funny" drunk routine that he must have brought with him from vaudeville and which has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the film. To virtually no one's surprise, the real Fritzi returns while Lilli's virtue is still intact, Count Mirko and Lilli fall in love, and they all live happily ever after. Anna Karenina this ain't, but it can be a pleasant evening's diversion if your expectations aren't too high.
