Synopsis

Marcia Blake, employed as a model in the fashionable boutique of Monsieur Henri, displays some gowns to Mrs. Reilly, a social climber; and Mr. Reilly furtively flirts with Marcia, though his wife castigates him for doing so. Later, when her brother, Bob, arrives in a new flivver, Marcia quarrels with him; and Henri receives a tomato in the face when he invites Marcia to a reception at the Reilly home. At the reception, Marcia meets William Duke, a social lion, and is anxious to meet Madame O'Flynn, a famous writer; but when the author fails to arrive, Marcia, over protests, is formally presented as Madame O'Flynn. William is smitten with her; and when he declares his love, Marcia is forced to evade him and later to reveal her imposture. Bob's appearance again causes havoc, and though William is also an imposter he buys out Henri and convinces Marcia of his sincerity.
