Banky is a recent arrival in the US from Hungary. Taken in by her uncle (Littlefield), she gets a job as a waitress and one day sees and falls in love with Hall, a millionaire. Banky believes him to be a chauffeur (probably because of the chauffeur's hat he is wearing) and when they are

married not long afterwards, she insists that he buy a taxi and go into business for himself. Littlefield, though, gambles away the cab money and Banky is compelled to borrow money from her cousin Ridgeway's rich lover. Hall finally reveals his wealth and Banky is swept up in a new love for her

adopted country. Silly romantic comedy with talking sequences is mostly a holdout from the silents. With the advent of sound, Banky was restricted by her accent to roles such as this in her first talking picture. She retired from the screen shortly afterward.
