Stan Laurel plays twins in this farce comedy, produced by Joe Rock. One twin is happily married to Alberta Vaughn, while the other is engaged to marry Julie Leonard (who, in real life, would wed director Norman Taurog). Somehow, the married twin has gone for 12 years without telling his wife that he has a twin. The two brothers run into each other when the single one comes home to get married. He is invited to stay at his brother's house. The married brother is away on business, and his wife mistakes the twin for her husband and believes he is about to commit bigamy. This causes a knock-down-drag-out fight (Stan gets the worst of it), and the single twin winds up in a courtroom. He manages to escape from the police, but runs into his fiancée and his brother's wife. Luckily, the brother happens along in time to explain everything, and his twin avoids being thrown in jail.
