Arthur Stringer’s short story became a comedic vehicle for the golden-silents team of Dwan and supernova Gloria Swanson. Store clerk Swanson (who prepped for the role by working a counter at Gimbels), stood up by grease-monkey beau Tom Moore, hits a party with pal Lilyan Tashman (also in our series’ Girls About Town) and charms dressmaker Frank Morgan, at whose behest she successfully impersonates a Russian countess—attracting unwanted suitors.
