Synopsis by Janiss Garza
This sophisticated light comedy was based on a successful stage play by Herman Bahr. Augustus Martinot (Lewis Stone) is a famed pianist. He is also no great catch, although his wife Mary (Mary Stedman) knows how to handle him. Nevertheless, women are fascinated by Martinot, primarily because of his profession, and the naively romantic Delphine Hart (Mabel Julienne Scott) decides he's her soul mate -- no matter that she's already married to a doctor (Raymond Hatton). Delphine convinces Martinot to take her up to his mountain cabin, and the erring pair are on their way. Their spouses, however, have caught wind of their plans and go in pursuit. But Mary and Dr. Hart have a plan -- when they confront Martinot and Delphine, Dr. Hart explains that they've decided that switching partners is a good idea. This almost immediately causes the adulterers untold jealousy and it isn't long before they return to lawfully-wedded bliss -- or some semblance thereof.
