Here Mr. and Mrs. Sydney Drew do what they know best -- play a happily married couple. Sydney plays Henry, his wife (the former Lucille McVey) plays Polly, and it is their wedding day. Unfortunately, Henry has left the ring at home and has to borrow the best man's wife's ring for the ceremony. The wife is not thrilled to give up her ring, even temporarily, and insists that it be returned as soon as possible. But when the ring is slipped on Polly's finger, she swears it will never leave her hand. The picture is based on the complications this causes. Sadly, this domestic comedy was one of Sidney Drew's last films -- he died a few months after it was released of an illness that may have been hastened by his depression over the death of his son during World War I.
