Synopsis
Joan’s parents forbid her to date, saying she's "boy crazy." She runs away from home and gets a job as a model. Joan becomes photographer Tom’s favourite subject and they fall in love, but she’s hesitant because of her parents’ previous comments about her emotional state. Joan’s parents come to take her home, but Tom discovers they are only her foster parents, and are trying to keep her single. She'll inherit a fortune if she gets married before age 21, otherwise the foster parents keep the money. Tom and Joan foil that plan.
