Paramount was trying to push Douglas MacLean and Doris May as a comedic duo, so it released this picture shortly after the actors' first co-starring effort, 23 1/2 Hours Leave. Here, May plays Beatrice Ridley, a young wife who is overly suspicious of her husband Robert William Buckley because of his communications with someone at a place called the Honeysuckle Inn. What she doesn't know is that Robert's behavior has to do with business, not pleasure, and he has hired an attorney to help with the matter. Beatrice hires an attorney of her own, who happens to be an old school chum, to trail Robert. Meanwhile, both attorneys' wives (Norris Johnson and Alice Elliott) are just as suspicious of their husbands as Alice is of hers. Everyone winds up at the inn, which is raided, and they all get thrown in the clink. Eventually, as in all farces good and bad, things get straightened out.
