Manicurist Patricia Farr draws a horse in the Sweepstakes... at least everyone thinks she has. It's actually another woman with the same name, happy to let the star of this movie have the publicity.

It's a decent but uninspiring movie directed by Charles Lamont. Everyone seems to be competent at their jobs, whether it's the actors in front of the camera or the technicians behind them. It's simply that none of the performances seem interesting, and Miss Farr seems to be better suited to best friend roles than this one. Eventually there's a murder in order to keep the moving from dying in its tracks.

The actress playing the sidekick. the other woman with the same name, is Vivien Oakland. She seems to have aged enormously in the ten years since she played in the classic silent short, MIGHTY LIKE A MOOSE The most interesting performance is by the ever-reliable Charles Lane, playing a publicity man.
