Husband Huntley Gordon has convinced himself that he's the head of the household, but the viewer knows full well that wifey Mae Busch is the true power behind the throne. When the couple has a baby, Gordon soon realizes who's boss as his wife runs the house like an armed camp, ordering her husband to stick to the baby doctor's strict feeding, clothing, and burping regimen. Rebelling against the tyranny of Busch and her squalling tot, Gordon seeks solace elsewhere, only to get mixed up with a sharp safecracker (Ian Keith). In the end, the couple learns how to raise their baby without raising the roof. Audiences laughed immoderately at this minor domestic farce, and the critics were likewise amused.
