Synopsis

Two couples, John and Margaret Rathburn and Victor and Elise Moran, have been married a year and live next door to each other. Margaret is an excellent cook and housekeeper but is not very affectionate, while Elise is very affectionate but cannot cook. Circumstances throw the couples together as Elise vamps John and Victor falls in love with Margaret. Margaret, determined to keep John, arranges for the four to go to a mountain lodge where the husbands and wives would live in separate cabins and each wife would cook for the other's husband. In the end John is glad to return to Margaret, and a sudden reversion to caveman tactics brings Elise to Victor's arms.
