The story is cleverly conceived. It concerns a pretty girl in a small town who thinks that she should be in the movies. Having nothing but beauty in her favor, she cannot get a chance; but her grandfather, being a type, is practically forced into film work. He takes on airs, is an honored guest at the homes of the stars, while the girl who expected to prove a sensation in pictures depends on him for her living. The grandmother and an old maid of the family rush to Hollywood on money the old fellow sent home. They are both nabbed as types and get into pictures. Every one connected with her gets into pictures but she herself.

It is an amusing idea, good comedy and the inside life of Hollywood is shown. The girl meets Mary Pickford, to whom she delivers a dress. Mary calls Doug Fairbanks out that the girl may meet him.
