Female executive Doris (Genevieve Tobin) is hardly "uncertain" in the business world, but she's not so secure in her home life. In fact, it looks as though Doris will lose her husband Bruce (Paul Cavanaugh) to the scheming Myra. To avoid this, she hires Elliot (Edward Everett Horton) as a "cardboard lover" to arouse Bruce's dormant passions. Things don't quite work out as planned, but Myra doesn't exactly win out either. The flawless comic acting of Edward Everett Horton helps take the audience's mind off the cliches inherent in this by-the-numbers marital farce.
