Although Herbert Rawlinson's acting talents never received great notices, he was well-cast in this blend of mystery and farce. Kerry Reynolds (Rawlinson) hates women and takes life very seriously. One day he comes home to find his brother Dick (Ralph McCullough) throwing a wild party. Dick lectures Kerry for never taking the time out to have fun. While at the doctor's, Kerry sees a girl crying. Later on, in a hotel lobby he sees the same girl. She leaves her purse behind and he picks it up only to be arrested by a pair of house detectives. From there he finds himself enmeshed in a number of odd adventures with Dick is chasing after him the whole time. What Kerry doesn't realize is that his friends have created all this mayhem on purpose. Only after he saves the girl by fighting off ten men in a deserted house does he find out it was all an act. His romance with the girl, however, is real, and once he knows her true identity he drops his woman-hating ways forever.
