The vivacious comedienne Colleen Moore is perfect in the role of aptly-named Pert Kelly. Pert’s a shop girl by day and a flapper by night. The very image of a modern gal, she has a wild reputation but lives at home with mom and dad. When the boss’s son Winthrop Peabody Jr. (Neil Hamilton) falls for her, Pert gets the ax. But Junior is still smitten and he devises a test to convince Winthrop Senior of Pert’s virtue.

Restored by Warner Bros. at L’Immagine Ritrovata laboratory.
