~Plot Synopsis~
Tom Barrett, a motion picture press agent, noting Frances Norcross' resemblance to film star
Daphne Dix, offers her passes to the star's personal appearance. While waiting for her fiancé,
Johnny Young, Frances is offered $1,000 to impersonate Daphne and successfully appears in her
place, assuaging the fears of Myers, a producer, who knows Daphne is with millionaire Harmon on a
yacht. Reporter J. Q. Adams has his suspicions aroused and sends a cub reporter to impersonate
Daphne's husband. At Daphne's apartment, Adams arrives and presses Barrett for an interview with
the star. Frances is confronted by the reporter and manages to bluff her way; Harmon arrives to ask
forgiveness, and he is followed by his wife, then Johnny, both demanding explanations. Frances
exchanges places with the real Daphne, and, after she explains, all ends happily.
