A grandmother's will leaves her fortune to a few, mostly to her great-niece Ann. Ann will only receive her inheritance once she marries, with the approval of three of her stuffed-shirt relatives, and without scandal. Otherwise, the estate goes to the cat and dog hospital. Ann, not needing the money, rebels by seeking scandal with a gigolo.

Loose Ankles is an early B-grade, pre-code, comedy talkie starring Loretta Young and Douglas Fairbanks Jr.. Like many films of during the transition to talkies the plot is convoluted, the script weak and with mostly poor acting. Still, the film has appeal to those interested in this era.
