SYNOPSIS

Gwendolyn, a giddy eighteen-year-old school girl, falls in love with Steve, a woman-hating bachelor who is trying to run away from women, although she has only seen his photograph. After she meets Steve and he rebuffs her, she tricks him into meeting her at night at the country estate of his mother. Gwendolyn's sister, who is having trouble with her marriage because of her husband's extreme jealousy, also goes to the estate for the weekend with a woman friend to teach her husband a lesson. After others arrive at the house, Gwendolyn's infatuation with Steve results in a shooting, the pursuit of a jealous wife by a husband, a police investigation and an elopement. Gwendolyn is suspected of the shooting, and in order to protect her, Steve poses as her husband. He is then accused of murder, wife-stealing and kidnapping. After Gwendolyn proves that the man who was shot had been fired upon by his own wife, who was jealous of his affairs with other women, everyone reconciles, more or less, with their mates, and Steve asks Gwendolyn to marry ...
