SYNOPSIS

After a year of marriage, Eloise Farrington is unhappy because her husband Hilary, a successful novelist, neglects her for his work. She seeks solace with Darrell McKnight, who neglects his fiancée, Nora Gail, and promises to elope with him, if no lovemaking is involved, should Hilary leave for his Norwich, Long Island bungalow without inviting her. When Hilary departs, Eloise phones Darrell, but Nora connives with Hilary to upset their plans. Hilary returns and says that he will not stand in their way. He offers the bungalow, and when they refuse, pulls out a revolver and insists. When Nora arrives at the bungalow, Darrell's suggestion that she and Hilary planned a rendezvous, provokes Eloise's jealousy.

In the morning, the Bishop marries Darrell and Nora, who have made up. They leave Hilary and Eloise, who, realizing their love for each other, begin their second ... +
