A.B. is the brains and power behind the Bancroft paint business, but longs for a more feminine role. She overhears the boss's grandson (Jimmy) unflattering opinion of her lack of charms, she's hurt. Jimmy's grandmother takes her under her wing and does a major her over, and teaches her to flutter her eyelashes and only say the two phrases to win a man: "Do go on!" and "Aren't you wonderful?". Snitz Edwards turns in his usual sterling performance. This is an enjoyable film chronicling one more skirmish in the war of the sexes.

A great light hearted comedy featuring Leatrice Joy (Mrs. John Gilbert).
