In this domestic comedy, a social climbing wife inadvertently creates trouble when she insists that her husband invite a renowned financier, who is new in town, to their house for dinner. Her husband doesn't know the man, and is too intimidated to ask him; instead, he hires an actor to play him. At dinner, the husband soon discovers that the "actor" is in reality the man who robbed the bank that very day. The cops are called and the crook is hauled away.
