Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein

A young socialite will do almost anything to get her errand husband back in this society comedy starring the on (and off) screen team of Claire Windsor and Bert Lytell. Returning from a vacation in Paris, Chaydeane Fairfax (Windsor) learns that her husband Jimmy (Lytell) has been keeping company with flapper Frances Melrose (Doris Kenyon). In desperation, Chaydeane pretends to have fallen for jazz hound Jack le Moyne (Cullen Landis), but her behavior instead drives poor Jimmy to commit further indiscretions. The couple is reunited, however, when Jimmy appears to have lost his fortune, causing Frances to lose interest. The starring quartet of this film -- Windsor, Lytell, Kenyon and Landis all belonged to the Hollywood B-list, popular and dependable performers who just missed becoming major stars. Windsor and Lytell would marry in 1925, but the union proved to be short-lived.
