A guest who will not leave provides the basis of this comedy. The trouble begins when a soldier returns from the war and finds himself saddled with a rather rude guest. The fellow stays because he feels the soldier owes him living quarters after he saved the soldier's life during the war. No matter what the beleaguered host tries, including a phony attempt to save the guest's life, the fellow refuses to leave. The situation is finally rectified when another war buddy shows up and proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the guest did not save the soldier's life. The guest then leaves, but is immediately replaced by the other fellow who maintains that it was he who really saved the soldier.
