Remember the days when men used tons of hair gel, wore wing-tips and had suits so sharp you could cut yourself? And remember the dames with sheer sateen dresses with low-cut backs that oozed style and class?? This film must have spent a bundle just on the wardrobe changes.
Annoyed by the tardiness of her fiancée a lady marries her lawyer Henry in a spur of the moment act of revenge. On the honey-moon her finacee shows up and she decides to forgive him, however she starts to see a side of Henry she has never seen before.
