Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Ralph Lynn (who also co-directed) plays a twittish lawyer whose prior engagements prevent him from attending his sweetheart's birthday party. Thanks to a series of unavoidable (and hilariously unbelievable) coincidences, Lynn ends up at a dance hall with a woman he barely knows. The problem: How to divest himself of this lady without hurting her feelings and getting into trouble with his own girlfriend. It's Ralph Lynn's show all the way, and he makes the most of every comic opportunity. It would be nice to say that the film's production values were on the same level as the star's performance -- nice, and untrue.
