Description by OLDIES.com:

Beautiful heiress Marian Dorsey gets herself hired as a shipping clerk in order to learn her father's business from the ground up. She falls in love with her handsome manager, George Mason, who knows her as only as working girl Marian Collins. She and George are invited to the boss's mansion for a weekend party. George enjoys living the good life for a few days, but when an expensive necklace disappears from the safe and is discovered in his jacket pocket, it appears that his weekend retreat is going to end with time in prison.

Beautiful Lila Lee stars in this long-lost motion picture from Chesterfield. Groomed by Paramount to replace their recalcitrant star, Gloria Swanson, Lee rose to prominence in films such as Blood and Sand (1922), Love, Live And Laugh (1929) and The Unholy Three (1930). Her son, actor/writer James Kirkwood, gained fame for writing one of Broadway's most successful musicals, A Chorus Line.

BONUS: Also includes A Romance of the Western Hills (1910) starring Mary Pickford and directed by D.W. Griffith.

Rating 3.5 Adorable Lila Lee Movie Lover: from BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND AU -- February, 19, 2014

Lila Lee is the adorable cheat who finds a
job as an audit clerk in her father's factory
- incognito of course. She falls in love with
her boss, a young go-getter who is everything
that her brother isn't, much to her father's
despair.
My copy was only about 44 minutes and while
some things are left up in the air - there is
no "I didn't know you were the bosses daughter,
you lied to me" moment but there is some
drama as money and jewels go missing from the
safe. All in all the film flows along and it is
easy to see why Lila Lee was such a popular
1920s star, she is a real cutie.
