The Christie brothers -- Al Christie and Charles Christie -- made popular comedies for many years (one of their alumni was eternal flapper Colleen Moore). For this six-reel feature, based on the London musical comedy by Fred Jackson, the Christies used most of their stock players. Perry Reynolds (John T. Murray) and his wife, Vivian (Wanda Hawley), are on their honeymoon, but Perry still has a roving eye. This does not sit well with Vivian at all, so she throws a party and invites a crowd of her admirers. Perry wants to teach her a lesson, and his friend, Geoffrey (Hallam Cooley), suggests that he pretend to fly to Hawaii. Perry takes him up on the idea, but he winds up on a plane headed to Hawaii for real, and Geoffrey has to rescue him in a speed boat. Perry hides in a boathouse, but Vivian figures out what he's doing and continues to flirt with her men friends. This little scenario is interrupted when a manic, who thinks he is the Hunchback of Notre Dame, runs amok. Perry, Geoffrey, and a Count (Jimmie Adams) all disguise themselves as the madman, causing a lot of mayhem. Vivian finally corners one maniac, who turns out to be her husband. They reconcile, and all is well.
