Storyline

Wayne Carter is a wealthy Manhattan businessman and partying playboy, he not caring about the marital status of the women with who he cavorts. His butler, Rollins, although tries to convince him that he would be happier falling in love and settling down, nonetheless aspires to his boss' lifestyle. Wayne, however, truly is tiring of his womanizing ways. Helene and Lita Andrews are sisters living together in a one room apartment. Helene is the more sensible one, she who is a currently unemployed but trained stenographer, and who supports Lita while Lita tries to get work as a dancer on the stage. Lita, however, would rather that some rich man marry and pamper her. Through indirect means, Wayne meets the sisters. Impressed by Helene and the good head she has on her shoulders, Wayne later tracks her down solely to offer her a well paying job as his executive assistant, he not having any ulterior motives in his offer. Despite being suspect that he is only after her as a woman, she accepts.... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Wayne Carter: Did the agency mention any salary?
Helene Andrews: Yes, 35 dollars a week. But, what difference does that make?
Wayne Carter: It makes just 15 dollars difference. I'll start you off at 50.
Helene Andrews: There, you see. That, there, is just what I said. People don't pay 50 dollars a week for ordinary stenographers and you know it.
Wayne Carter: Will you stop trying to misunderstand me. This is not an ordinary stenographer's position. This is an executive secretary's position. Now, I feel all employees will have more dignity when the job pays more money.

MAE TALKS! - Pleasant Light Comedy
16 July 2003 | by stephen6387See all my reviews

Mae Murray proves, unlike so many silent superstars, that she can speak on screen in her first of two sound pictures. A pleasant light comedy co-starring Lowell Sherman as a sophisticated roue and a very young Irene Dunne stealing the film from the titular star.
