Storyline

The insistence of their tradesmen for payment on past due bills compels Paul, the Viscount De Sallure, and his young American wife Florence to invent imaginative measures in order to tap the principal amount of Florence's dowry. According to her father's will, only the interest of Florence's vast inheritance is available to her unless she is separated from her husband. Concocting a scheme by which the couple would divorce, acquire the money and then remarry, Paul pretends to have an affair with Mlle. Fifi. When Florence begins to suspect that her husband's affair is more than a ruse, however, it begins to look as if their divorce scheme will become a reality until Florence's wealthy mother, Mrs. Safford, intervenes and settles the couple's debts as well as their suspicions. Written by Pamela Short
