Once again, Lucius Henderson directs Mary Fuller in this farce. Mary McGuire (Fuller) is the spirited daughter of a soap king. Mrs. McGuire is determined that Mary will wed someone titled and has enlisted the help of an international matrimonial bureau. Mary, meanwhile, ignores her mother's plans and sneaks off to a masked ball dressed as Pierette. There she meets Teddy Van Duysen (Matt Moore), who comes from old money, dressed as Pierrot. Neither one divulges their identity to the other, but they spend a wonderful evening together. At the end of the night, Teddy suggests that they exchange rings so that they will know each other when they meet once again. The marriage bureau has found a Duke D'Enfetti (sixty-ish funnyman Etienne Giradot), and Mrs. McGuire happily arranges a dinner to announce his engagement to Mary. But as dinnertime draws near, she discovers she'll have one empty place. She calls a few clubs and finds Teddy, who pretends to be a poor young man named Jones and offers to show up. But when he gets there, the servants mistake him for the duke, while the real duke is turned away. Eventually Mary and Teddy see each other's rings and later on, he sends her a note to meet him in the park. She does, skipping out on her mother and the duke, and agrees to marry him even though he claims he is penniless. After they elope, however, the truth comes out. Mrs. McGuire is thrilled that Mary has wed a Van Duysen. The Van Duysen family, on the other hand, is not so thrilled that their boy has married a soap king's daughter. But Mary wins them over and all ends well.
