Wyatt is a poor little rich girl who bets her wealthy pop (Pallette) that she can live in big, bad New York City on the paltry sum of $150 per week. She wants to prove to him that she can handle poverty, since her fiance, Reed, is not exactly rich. Arriving in the big town, she proves

herself right; however, her marriage plans change slightly when she meets another poverty-stricken young man, Hayward. He's a resident at the house she lodges in, projecting the right amount of boyish charm to win her heart. With a script adapted from a story in the Ladies Home Journal, this

picture was made with a female audience as its target. The script is not terribly complicated, and you may want to bring out a dustcloth for some of the gags. Buzzell's direction gives the film a certain charm, moving it along at the right pace, and Wyatt does a nice job as the ingenue, ultimately

carrying the film.
