The "man in hobbles" (a reference to his unique trousers) is young professional photographer John Harron. Upon marrying Lila Lee, Harron is taken aback when Lee's large and obnoxious family moves into the couple's tiny honeymoon cottage. Virtually squeezed out of his own home, Harron sullenly heads to New York to seek his fortune. He returns a huge success, whereupon he kicks his bride's family out, kit 'n' caboodle. Lucien Littlefield, at age 34 already well established in "old coot" parts, is seen as Lee's pompous pop.
