Based on his novel 'The Pinnacle' by Erich Stroheim (as he was then billed), not a lot really happens during the preliminaries as third-billed Stroheim eyes up the heroine, who is presumably drawn to the attention he shows her rather than any charm or sexual magnetism he displays.
Fay Holderness as The 'Vamp' Waitress later played Mrs Oliver Hardy in 'Hog Wild' (1930); making her with Mae Busch the first Stroheim veteran to work with Laurel & Hardy.
