Betty Lou (Bow) is a working-class shopgirl with a crush on the owner (Moreno) of the department store where she works. Through a series of hilarious hijinks, Betty Lou attracts her crush’s attention, until a case of mistaken identity creates a rift between them. Believed lost for many years, this charming silent romcom solidified Clara Bow as cinema’s first ‘it girl.’
