This picture, based on the stage play by Lillian Trimble Bradley, was an odd choice of material for star Norma Talmadge -- it was a lightweight comedy-drama which gives Talmadge little opportunity to show her talents as an emotional actress. She plays Jacqueline Boggs, the convent-bred daughter of a wealthy American hog farmer, James Sheridan Boggs (Howard Truesdale). She innocently marries the titled Donald Mannersby (Harrison Ford), not realizing that he needs her cash to keep his brother out of prison. Donald's uppity family snubs the farmer's daughter and when she finds out the real reason for the wedding she walks out. But Donald has really come to love his wife, so he goes to Iowa to explain things to her father. Jacqueline shows up and the couple reconcile. Julia Hoyt, a prominent society woman, has a small role in this film, but she does not exactly distinguish herself; not surprisingly she decided to stick with what she knew best -- her social career.
