Bert Lytell stars as Richard Band, a handsome doctor specializing in women's ailments. One of Band's more impressionable patients, Doris Frazer (Dorothy Devore), falls in love with the doc and gives her boyfriend Jack (Frederick Kovert) the air. In retaliation, Jack spreads rumors that Band has an unsavory past, replete with a "wrong woman." And just to prove that he's not whistling Dixie, Jack dons female garb to pose as Band's "ex-lover" Mimi. Beyond the laughs inherent in the basic plotline, Harry Myers (the unforgettable drunken millionaire in Chaplin's City Lights) provides additional yocks as a flustered detective.
