Plot

Jewel Courage (Borden) rejects a suitor (Hamilton), whom she thinks is a chauffeur, in favor of a man she thinks is a millionaire. It transpires that the roles were, in fact, reversed; Hamilton is the millionaire and the other man a chauffeur. Jewel is crushed but manages to do well for herself in business, until she and the real millionaire find themselves reconciled.

Production

Location filming took place in Palm Beach, Florida. Either part or all of the film was shot in Technicolor. It was the last film to be shot in the second Technicolor process ("System 2"), before the company's implementation of a new, improved format in 1928.

Availability

A print of The Joy Girl with Czech intertitles is held at the Museum of Modern Art.
