Playwright and actor Steve Curtis rushes out of the theater where he is trying to mount a production to avoid a creditor, only to be hit by the limousine of beautiful Patricia Williams. Against the advice of her escort, Roger Bright, Patricia insists on taking the injured "middle-aged" man home for medical treatment, unaware that the youthful Steve is wearing character makeup. Soon after his arrival at Patricia's home, Steve, still disguised as an older man, attracts the romantic attentions of her wealthy aunt Minerva. Steve quickly finds himself in a quandary, as he has fallen in love with Patricia, but wants Minerva's money to finance his play. To solve his predicament, he poses as his Uncle John and woos Minerva, while at the same time courting Patricia as himself. In due time, he finds himself engaged to both ladies, with Minerva planning a double wedding. At their engagement party, the jealous Roger attempts to expose Steve's dual roles, but is foiled when Steve's real uncle John arrives and turns out to be physically identical to his nephew's disguise. Steve confesses all to his tycoon uncle, and Minerva then convinces the real Uncle John that the double wedding is still a great idea.
