Has the World Gone Mad? answers its own question by detailing the sinful excesses of the "Jazz Age." Future gossip columnist Hedda Hopper stars as Mrs. Adams, a sedate housewife who decides to kick up her heels and sample the wilder side of life. Walking out on her husband (Robert Adams), Mrs. Adams moves to the Big City, where she enters into an affair with Mr. Bell (Charles Richman), the father of her son's (Vincent Coleman) girlfriend (Elinor Fair). After 7 reels of gay abandon, Mrs. Adams comes to her senses and returns to her faithful hubby. By the end of the 1920s, films involving the peccadillos of middle-agers had given way to scenarios about "Flaming Youth," and Hedda Hopper had settled into character roles.
