In one of his last silent films, Conrad Nagel stars as Charles H. Cook, a sober-sided young man who is persuaded by his buddies to visit a nightclub. Partaking of spirits for the first time in his life, Cook proceeds to get totally plastered and ends up passing out on the floor. Upon awakening, he is informed that he has sullied the reputation of good-time-girl Miss Scott (Sharon Lynn). It's all a hoax, of course, but Cook doesn't know that -- and even worse, he's got a less-than-understanding wife (June Collyer) at home. Things really get dicey when Mrs. Cook insists the next evening that her husband take her out to dinner -- at the selfsame nightclub where her hubby made a fool of himself the night before. When the title Red Wine failed to click at the box office, Fox Studios changed it to the somewhat less subtle Let's Make Whoopee.
