SYNOPSIS

When Geoffrey Challoner sees his new wife Robin caressing old love letters, he assumes that they have been sent by a rival lover and storms out of the house. In his absence, Norman Craig, who with his wife plans to lease an upstairs apartment owned by Judge Corcoran, wanders absent-mindedly into the Challoners' apartment, and Robin, mistaking him for a burglar, shoots him and then runs for a doctor.

Following a bewildering series of misadventures, including an attempted robbery by the maid and the chauffeur, Geoffrey learns that the love letters actually were his own, and the young couple is ... +
