Synopsis

To relieve the boredom of their marriage, Alfred and Adela, a young dancing team, are constantly on the alert for a new flirtation. One morning Dr. Eisenstein comes to their apartment with the intent of thrashing Alfred with his cane for entrancing his wife, Rosalind, by practicing in front of the open window, but his temper quickly cools as he recognizes Adela as a former sweetheart, and he tells Rosalind a fantastic story to cover his flirtation with Adela. Alfred, however, returns the doctor's cane, begins a counter flirtation with Rosalind, and tells her about her husband's philandering. Driving to meet Adela, Eisenstein is arrested for speeding; meanwhile, Alfred visits Rosalind, but when officers come to take the doctor to jail, Alfred declares he is Eisenstein to save Rosalind's reputation. Rosalind hears on the radio that Adela and Eisenstein have won a Charleston contest at the ball, where she finds the doctor intoxicated. After a number of amusing tiffs, Adela finds a new admirer and the couple are reconciled.
