A woman (Gloria Swanson) who works in shop ends up at a party of upper class people who make fun fun of her antics but as a result she meets three men who want her for various reasons but she finally comes back to her original lover. Gloria Swanson gives a great comic performance particularly in the first scene where she is squashed on the underground during rush hour. It is her performance and particularly her facial expressions that make this film worth watching. It is more of a series of set pieces rather than revolving round the plot.
