Guy P. Bolton's stage farce Mirabelle was given a more saleable title for its 1938 British filmization. Now travelling under the name Too Many Husbands, Bolton's story tells of notorious con artist Jack Melford, who is wrongly reported as having been killed in a plane crash. Adopting a new identity, Melford heads for the gaming tables of Monte Carlo, certain that he will not be prevented by his bad reputation from making a fortune. Enter Melford's wife Iris Baker, who is posing as a countess. Using the threat of exposure, Baker convinces Melford to turn honest.
