Jack Gayboy is in love with Dolly Varden, a famous Broadway favorite, and true to the proverb their love affair fails to run smoothly. The father, Mr. Gayboy, objects to his son's marriage with an actress, though as the picture develops it is shown that he, too, is an admirer of the fair sex. Jack, knowing his father's weakness, arranges with his sweetheart to impersonate a maid in their home, and by a well-arranged plan they succeed in securing Kodak evidence of the old man's penchant for those whom he considers not in his sphere. When confronted with proofs of his fondness for the girl, Mr. Gayboy relents and gives his permission to the marriage of Jack and Dolly, which duly takes place.
