I've Been Around hinges on an unlikely case of mistaken identity. Society girl Drue Waring (Rochelle Hudson) mistakes roughneck engineer Eric Foster (Chester Morris) for the foppish Franklin DeHaven (G. P. HUNTLEY JR.) The two get married, but Eric walks out on Drue when he finds out that she's carrying a torch for DeHaven. Going on a two-year drunk, Foster is unexpectedly reunited with Drue at a society party. She wants to get back together, but he refuses, whereupon she dashes to the bathroom and tries to kill herself. This somehow brings about a happy ending, though by this time the audience has probably given up on both of these self-centered clods!
