Miss Lillian Travers, a New York heiress, is about to visit her aunt, Miss Constancia Oglethorp, at her home in St. Augustine, Fla., and at the same time join her fiancé, Dr. Fred Cassadene.

Moving Picture World synopsis
The first gay film ever made? Possibly. A woman pops a few exotic pills that enhances her with sexual male behaviour . She takes a fancy to women, creating a slight stir. But to get into their pants she has to dress as a male. Maybe the first ever cross dressing film? Light screwball farce with the usual over-the-top acting from silent flics. By the way. Director Sidney Drew happens to be Drew Barrymore's great Grandfather or Uncle or something like that!
