Universal star Laura LaPlante struggles to fill out a very scanty story in this lightweight farce comedy. Molly and Sam Thornhill (LaPlante and John Harron) are a young couple who have been married less than a year. Although they dearly love each other, they argue constantly over every little thing. But when Molly discovers a pair of silk stockings in Sam's pocket, it's a very big deal. Even though Sam is completely innocent -- one of the girls at work took them off during her lunch hour and hid them as a joke -- Molly is determined to get a divorce. She lies to the judge, claiming that her meek, retiring husband is a gambler, a womanizer, and a wife beater. She manages to get her decree, but both she and Sam regret it almost immediately. Before the final decree goes through, Molly discovers that if Sam compromises her, the divorce will be void. She heads for his room in order to make that happen but wanders into the wrong room -- and the fun is on. Needless to say, the couple are embracing once again by the final frame.
