Flamboyant flapper Cynthia Stockton (Marie Prevost) and misogynistic author Stanley Warrington (the "original" Harrison Ford) "meet cute" when their cars collide. Hoping to escape Warrington's wrath, Cynthia hitches a ride on a milk truck and returns home earlier than expected. Upon finding her fiance in the arms of her own sister, the disillusioned Cynthia dashes off into the night, taking shelter in a posh mansion -- owned, of course, by Warrington. When the acerbic author discovers Cynthia asleep in his bed, he blows his top, but his anger is nothing compared to the rage exhibited by Cynthia's father (Franklin Pangborn), who assumes the worst. Hastily, Cynthia claims that she and Warrington are married, leading to further misadventures during their "honeymoon" cruise.
