A young man falls in love with a girl from a rich family. His unorthodox plan to go on holiday for the early years of his life is met with skepticism by everyone except for his fiancée's eccentric sister and long suffering brother.
Shortly after their marriage, Norman Warriner ( Henry Daniell ) and his wife, Lucy ( Ina Claire ), quarrel over her friendship with Jimmy Kempster ( John Roche ), resulting in an interlocutory decree of divorce to be granted within a year unless the couple become reconciled. At a charity bazaar, Lucy dances with Dan Leeson ( Paul Harvey ), an oil magnate, who repeatedly proposes to her, and annoyed by her husband's dancing with another woman, Lucy absentmindedly accepts Dan's offer. Finding herself the subject of scandalous gossip, Lucy urges Dan and his aunt to listen to her husband's story, he denies the truth of the rumors and exonerates her, then plans to leave for Europe. Lucy breaks her engagement to Dan and is happily reunited with her husband when he learns that Kempster had only asked his wife for a kiss, which she had refused him
This 1929 silent comedy was directed by Marshall Neilan and starred the beautiful actress Ina Claire, who starred in the original stage version on Broadway in 1922. Sadly this film version of the popular comedy, tragically now remains lost.
