Neil McRae, an impoverished composer, loves Cynthia Mason, but fearing poverty, proposes to the wealthy Gladys Cady. One night, he dozes in an armchair and has a nightmare of a wedding and life with Gladys. In robe and top hat, he's swept into a church by an exuberant master of ceremonies, the pews fill with guests, a band of frogs play, and the bride enters with her glum father, who glares at Neil and calls him a fortune hunter, and her mother, who sits in a rocker and looks approving. After the revelry, the couple heads to life in her parents' home. Neil calls out for Cynthia. Can he compose himself, and find the courage to seek love over comfort? Written by
