After a few films that did not showcase her talent well, Bebe Daniels was able to redeem herself in this comedy based on the F. Tennyson Jesse stage play Quarantined. Although Pamela Gordon (Eden Gray) is engaged to explorer Tony Blunt (Harrison Ford), she gets tired of waiting for him to come back from an expedition and accepts the proposal of Mackintosh Josephs (Alfred Lunt). But Blunt returns from Africa two weeks before the wedding, and, to avoid causing a scene, Pamela makes plans to elope with him. To keep everyone in the dark about her elopement with Blunt, however, she convinces Blunt to court her tomboyish sister, Diana (Bebe Daniels). Diana believes that Blunt has really fallen in love with her, and tricks him so that he marries her. (He thinks he is marrying Pamela.) She then boards a ship with her aunt, Amelia Pincent (Edna May Oliver), and hides from Blunt temporarily. When he discovers he has married Pamela's sister, he is furious, but, by then, the ship has been quarantined. By the time the quarantine is over and Pamela arrives, Diana has won Blunt over.
