Newspaper photographer Jones, assigned to cover a society wedding, falls for Furness, the bride's younger sister. The romance is opposed by Kolker, the father of the girls, because of sheer snobbery. The lovelorn lensman is forced to take up a more "respectable" profession as an

advertising copywriter, with ludicrous results, but all comes out well in the end. Jones, a former football player, ordinarily handled supporting roles; this was his big shot at stardom. He and Furness worked well together thanks, in part, to the realistic dialog penned by coscripter Yawitz, a

one-time newspaper columnist. Landers--who had made his feature film debut as director under his real name, Louis Friedlander, two years before with THE RAVEN starring Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi--here proves his ability to handle light comedy.
