Movie Info

Constance Talmadge is clearly the driving force in this farce, based on A Man From Toronto by Douglas Murray. Flighty Leila Calthorpe (Talmadge) is the heiress to her grandfather's estate, and the family lawyer, Hanover Priestly (Henry Fawcett), is anxious to see her married and settle down. He schemes to have John Warren (Kenneth Harlan), the nephew of his friend Henry Winkley (Frank Webster), wed the girl, but Warren wires from the West that he will pick his own mate, thank you very much. In order to bring him East, they wire a false report of Winkley's death, claiming that the will insists that he marry Leila to get his inheritance. Leila, meanwhile, is miffed at Warren's outright rejection of her, sight unseen, and decides to play a trick on him. She pretends to be a maid at her own home, and tells him that the mistress of the manor is away. She then shows him a photo of her maiden aunt, Agatha (the exceedingly homely Flora Finch), and tells him it is Leila. From that moment on, the action is fast and funny until the predictable end, when the love-besotted Warren insists that he will wed the maid -- who turns out to be the girl his uncle wanted him to marry in the first place.
