Clive Brook is in love with Jocelyn Lee, but he daren't marry her. Should he escort Jocelyn down the aisle, Brook will lose every penny of the huge inheritance left him by his uncle. He tries to circumvent this codocil by marrying Florence Vidor "in name only", on the understanding that he will be free to romance his true love. By reel seven, of course, Brook has renounced the shallow Jocelyn and fallen in love with Florence. Afraid to Love is adapted from a French stage farce, which played in the US as The Marriage of Kitty.
