While drunk at a party, millionaire Stephens Cormack (Neil Hamilton) playfully marries footloose Clarice Andrews (Patricia Farr). Sobering up the next morning, Cormack hurriedly tells his lawyer to arrange for an annulment, then retreats to South America. What Cormack doesn't know is that Clarice was already married, making him a bigamist in the eyes of the law should anyone find out. Clarice's helpful sister Paula (Sally Eilers) offers to pose as her sibling for appearance's sake, moving into Cormack's mansion until the annulment is finalized. Paula's life is made a living hell by Cormack's bratty children (Marice Mae Jones and George Ernest) and snooty servants -- not to mention Clarice's disreputable hubby Michael (Joseph Schildkraut) -- until everything is straightened out in the final footage.
