In September 1928, Warner Bros. Pictures purchased a majority interest in First National Pictures and from that point on, all "First National" productions were actually made under Warner Bros. control, even though the two companies continued to retain separate identities until the mid-1930's, after which time "A Warner Bros.-First National Picture" was often used.

Alice White is, indeed, a "Naughty Flirt". She plays a "wild and crazy party girl" who loves to go out and engage men. One man, a lawyer, resists her advances - so, naturally, she wants him most of all. He spanks her for her naughty ways, and it changes her life (she tells him he really makes an "impression"). She gets herself a job as lawyer Paul Page's secretary and does tough things like clean his inkwell. Myrna Loy is good as a supporting player who wants to set her brother up with wealthy Ms. White. White is an engaging and funny performer, but her character behavior at the end of the film is so dumb it spoils the film. It shows the character has no maturity. If I were Mr. Page, I would shine her on - or, give her another spanking.
*** The Naughty Flirt (1/11/31) Edward F. Cline ~ Alice White, Paul Page, Myrna Loy
