Although she's in love with Barney Malone (played by the "original" Harrison Ford), heroine Molly Shawn (Vivian Martin) cannot marry him because her once-aristocratic family is flat broke. In desperation, she agrees to marry feeble old millionaire Jim Barry (G. S. Spaulding), who is about to kick the bucket at any minute. Jim understands the situation and is willing to pass into the Next World to provide for the heroine in this world. But no one has counted upon Jim staging a miraculous recovery, least of all Jim himself. Fighting back the tears, Molly insists upon renouncing Barney and honoring her marital vows. Fortunately for all concerned, the clergyman who performed the wedding ceremony turns out to be a phony, freeing the still-virginal Molly to marry her Barney.
