Before he became a producer at MGM, Paul Bern showed a flair for directing, adding a sophisticated touch to this comedy-drama. Salesman Fred Hopper (Pat O'Malley) gets by on bluff and he uses his skills to win Eleanor Lawson (Agnes Ayers) over his rival, department store head Clifford Ramsey (Victor Varconi). But once they are wed, Eleanor discovers the truth -- that all of Hopper's flash was bought on loan and now the couple is heavily in debt. Things get so bad that Eleanor goes to work and Hopper asks Ramsey for a job. When he overhears Ramsey discussing the purchase of a new site, he gets an option on the property with the help of a rich widow. Eleanor smells perfume on his sleeve when he returns from the transaction and she suspects he has been unfaithful. She leaves him and Ramsey uses this opportunity to woo her once again. She ultimately decides she wants to stick with Hopper and they are reunited.
