Fabled Broadway musical comedy star Raymond Hitchcock heads the cast of this amiable programmer. Though Hitchcock is top-billed as Henry Carter, the plotline proper is set in motion by Theodore von Eltz, cast as conservative businessman John Morgan. In order to land an important client (Hitchcock), Morgan is obliged to escort a beautiful redhead to a costume ball. Finding out about this, and suspecting that some hanky-panky is involved, Morgan's wife Angela (Marjorie Daw) dons a mask and a red wig and offers herself as the companion of her unwitting hubby. Angela's jealousy-motivated subterfuge works to everyone's advantage when she manages to cinch the deal for Morgan.
