~Plot Synopsis~
Lily UpJohn (Anita Stewart), a girl from the slums of London, becomes a chorus girl who gets her big
break when a prop man knocks a can of paint off the theater scaffolding. Her admonishment to "Mind the
paint!" is overheard by a composer and it ends up as the inspiration for the hit song of the play he is
working on. Lily, now known as Lily Parradell, gets to sing this unlikely number and becomes a star
overnight. The "Mind the Paint Girl" winds up with two suitors: Captain Nicholas Jeyes (Conway Tearle)
who loves her so much that he gives up his army career to be near her, and the aristocratic Lord
Francombe (Victor Steele). Jeyes' jealousy causes a rift between him and Lily, and it gets even worse
when he finds her in Lord Francombe's embrace. But eventually she and Jeyes are reconciled and they
marry. This picture was based on the hit play by Sir Arthur Wing Pinero. The ladylike Anita Stewart was
miscast as Lily. Tearle, on the other hand, was well-suited for the role of Jeyes.
