Wasn't Lancing Ware a character in 'Valley of the Dolls?'
Joseph Greer (Lewis Stone) is a wealthy businessman in New York City---jump on it keyworders---with all the trappings including a prim-and-proper secretary, Jenny McFarlan, who takes dictation during working hours and, at night, minus her eyeglasses, serves as his nightclub companion and mistress.
Then his daughter,Beatrice (Shirley Mason), whom he has never seen, shows up and moves in with him. Beatrice is a grown-up flapper who loves jazz, pool parties, flaunting prohibition and carrying-on in general. Most of her carrying-on is with the family chauffeur and her father does not approve, says so and fires the chauffeur. His parental-guidance technique backfires as Beatrice ups and elopes with the chauffeur.
Later, the father has some problems with his business associates and loses his business and most of his fixtures and disappears. But Beatrice locates him and there is a happy reunion between father and daughter, especially since daughter has brought along Jenny to cheer him up.
The usual five bloc-voting Bogus-Movie-Voters give this one a thumbs-down 4.0 rating.
