~Plot Synopsis~
Bebe Daniels was at the peak of her silent stardom when she appeared in this comedy, which was
really more slapstick than farce. Ginette (Daniels) is a waitress at Pierre's café. She is in love with
Lucien (Douglas Gilmore) and hates getting attention from anyone else. Whenever another man tries
to kiss her, she angrily starts throwing glassware. The restaurant's patrons find this amusing, and
Leon Lambert (Henry Kolker) makes a bet that he will be able to kiss her. He finally does the deed in
a taxi, but Ginette's response is so fierce that the cab crashes into Pierre's. Lambert buys Ginette the
restaurant, expecting that she will be grateful, but of course she isn't. Circumstances dictate that
Ginette must pose as Lambert's daughter. He really wants her out of his home now, so he plots with a
pal, Henri (Richard Tucker), to make it appear that she has been compromised by the primly proper
Maraval (Chester Conklin). After a lot of complications, and lot more broken glassware, Ginette and
Lucien finally wind up together.
