Former Mack Sennett comedian Ford Sterling practically steals this show in this Malcolm St. Clair-directed picture, which Moving Picture World called, "As spicy as a French domestic farce and yet as clean as a hound's tooth." William Hyatt (Tom Moore) runs an exclusive shoe store, and his happy marriage to Grace (Florence Vidor) is nearly derailed by his well-meaning, but hopelessly gauche pal, Al Hennessy (Sterling). Dagmar, a Parisian shoe designer (Esther Ralston) has come to town to meet with Hyatt and Hennessy, and Hennessy describes the situation to Grace in the worst possible manner, convincing her that her husband is having an affair. The more information Hennessy offers, the more incensed Grace becomes until she and Hyatt decide to take a break from each other. Hyatt goes to a summer hotel, and the suspicious Grace follows after him, expecting to catch him in the midst of a torrid romance. Instead, she finds that Hennessy has married Dagmar, who was an innocent party this whole time. As a result, Hyatt and Grace quickly reconcile.
