Wealthy John Woodbury (Douglas MacLean) is mistaken for a patient by a trio of overeager doctors. After being put through a battery of tests (one of which involves blindfolding Woodbury, who promptly walks out on the ledge of the high rise building), he is told he only has three months left to live. Woodbury's pal, Hector Walters (Hallam Cooley), convinces him to marry his girl, Violet Stevenson (Lillian Rich), so she can clean up financially when he kicks the bucket. Unfortunately -- for Waters, at least -- Woodbury survives the three months and keeps on going. Subsequent attempts on his life don't have the desired effort, either. Eventually, Woodbury really falls in love with his wife and they head off on a belated honeymoon, with a gunman not far behind. This picture was adapted from the play by William H. Post.
