In Los Angeles, Richard and Marian Corbett
(Anne Gwynne), a young married
couple, file for a legal separation. Because of Richard's poor
financial condition, Marian shocks the magistrate, Judge Wilson,
when she agrees to forgo any alimony. Upon the advise of Wilson,
Richard then acts aloof toward Marian, in hopes of winning her
Marian, in turn, takes her aunt Helen's advice and pretends
to be headed for Las Vegas in order to see her old boyfriend,
lawyer Jim Bradley, in hopes of making Richard jealous and winning
him back. Their mutual strategies backfire, however, and end up
driving them further apart. Marian and Helen then board a train to
Las Vegas, which Richard misses when he literally runs into a
beautiful socialite, Grace Towers.
Richard and Grace manage to
board Marian and Helen's train at its Arlington stop, but, having
lost her reservation, Richard gives Grace his berth. The
conductor, however, makes the train-sick Richard join his "wife"
Grace in "their" berth, where he is discovered by Marian and
Helen. In Las Vegas, Richard and Marian are forced to share a
taxi, but every attempt at reconciliation is halted by Helen.
Nearly penniless upon her arrival at the expensive Hotel El
Casino, Helen wins, then loses a small fortune at the gambling
tables. In the meantime, Richard is forced to dine with Grace, and
ends up spending all his money. Richard and Marian are then hired
by casino owner Hal Blake, who has been led to believe that Marian
is single and Richard is married to Grace. While being trained for
their new jobs at Blake's residence, a series of misunderstandings
prompt Hal's wife to suspect him of being romantically involved
with both Marian and Grace.
Later, while Grace attempts a
reconciliation with her jealous husband, Marian and Helen dine
with Jim to discuss Marian's separation. That night, everyone
meets at Jim's house, as Marian, Grace and Mrs. Blake have all
sought the lawyer's representation in their planned divorce cases.
When Jim pretends that his pet gorilla has broken out of his cage,
all the lights go out, but soon come back on with all three
couples reconciled. Helen, however, is found hanging from a moose
head, trying to place gambling bets.
