A famous lady portraitist moves into the country home of a prominent widower-writer to paint his protrait. Almost at once she discovers the premises to be dominated by the writer's mother, an impossible harridan who won't permit smoking, radios or liquor in the house, who insists on punctuality at meals, and otherwise browbeats everyone into a state of timorous dejection. But of course the painter is a lady of great charm and perception. In no time she has fostered the romance of her subject's daughter and his male secretary, a young scholar not considered suitable by the father. At the same time she is herself the center of a growing romance with the father and his other guest, a humorous broker. She has also the leisure to charm the bonnet off the grandmother, get the portrait painted, and eventually pull together all the scattered affairs.
"A good-natured and inoffensive little comedy that might be quite popular in the summer playhouses or small-town stock companies. College dramatic societies might well revel in it." - New York Post
