While honeymooning in Paris, wealthy John Battleby Watts (Donald Brian) is persuaded to purchase a $20,000 necklace for his capricious young wife (Olive Tell). When the jeweler refuses to accept his check, John heads to the bank for the necessary funds. En route, he passes a little shop specializing in imitation jewelry. Figuring his wife will never know the difference, he buys a cheap duplicate of the 20-grand bauble. Later on, however, he reconsiders and purchases the genuine article. But before he can reach his hotel, John is detained by saucy chorus girl Rita Bori, whom he presents with what he thinks is the imitation necklace. Unfortunately, it's the real one -- and from this point forward, the story virtually writes itself.
