A "Cinderella"-type story stars Harvey as a simple hotel clerk. She's mad for Ayres but can't match him in sophistication. Her girl friends take two weeks to transform Harvey from her common status into a classy socialite. Of course she ends up with Ayres, but not without some problems

along the way. Butterworth is an "ardent philatelist" who almost wins Harvey's heart. Langdon, looking painfully old with his well-known baby face showing its lines, is Cupid guiding his charge to a successful romance. This was Harvey's American debut after a successful career with UFA in Germany.

She is an ethereal presence, making the fantasy work with her charm and grace. Some unusual production numbers are included. One imaginative sequence contains a chorus of singing toy animals and building gargoyles. Also included is a shot of four fan magazines with Will Rogers, Clara Bow, Warner

Baxter, and Janet Gaynor on the respective covers. Like the toys, these famous faces also sang, using the voices of the real stars. Songs include: "How Do I Look?" "Gather Lip Rouge While You May," "You Can Be Had So Be Careful."
