Synopsis

Following a football celebration, Tom Sterling is tricked into marrying Carmen Mendoza, a chorus girl; and while awaiting a divorce decree, he unexpectedly inherits $3 million. Tom rescues Kid Boots, a tailor's helper, from the irate clutches of a customer; and The Kid follows him to his apartment, where Carmen tries to prove that her marriage is a success so that she may share the fortune. Tom's lawyer, so as to deter Carmen from further demonstrations, advises him to keep The Kid nearby. Under an assumed name, Tom becomes a golf professional, and Kid Boots is made caddy-master. The Kid falls for Jane Martin, a swimming instructor, but she rejects him when he pretends to flirt with Carmen. Finally, Tom persuades Jane to help him; and with the aid of horses, mules, airplanes, and autos, she and The Kid arrive at the courthouse in time to clear Tom.
