Toby McLean, New York sportswriter, meets movie columnist Ann Vaughn while covering the Dempsey-Tunney fight in Philadelphia, and their subsequent romance leads to marriage. They begin life modestly in a New York apartment, but shortly afterward he is sent to St. Louis to cover the World Series and is introduced to Puffy Randolph, a dizzy young socialite, though he is too engrossed with Ann to notice her. Soon he becomes jealous of his wife's success and earnings and goes on the town with Puffy; they again meet at the bicycle races, and returning home drunk, he is ordered from the house by his wife. They separate, but when Ann is temporarily blinded by tainted liquor, Toby realizes she still loves him and plunges into his work; with the aid of his fellow reporter, Shorty Ross, he regains his self-esteem and is reunited with Ann.
