Robert Bennett, an idle socialite, wagers $30,000 with his three friends that he can tell nothing but the truth for a period of one week. His troubles begin at a party where his friends' wives question Robert about their husbands' outside activities. Forced to tell the truth, Robert's veracity results in domestic disharmony. Consequently, his vengeful trio of friends pursue Robert for the next five days, intent upon silencing him until the week is over. They finally resort to committing Robert to an insane asylum where he escapes with the aid of Dolly, who is in love with him because she believes that Robert is a society thief. When the real burglar arrives, he tries to frame Robert for his crimes, but Robert is cleared as the week ends and claims both his wager and his sweetheart, Gwendolyn Gerald.

The play by James Montgomery was adapted from Frederic S. Isham's novel. William Collier starred in the stage production of both Nothing But the Truth and Nothing But Lies. Taylor Holmes's next film was Nothing But Lies. Some scenes in the film were shot at the Dunwoodle Golf Club in Westchester County, NY, and at the Delmar estate at Glen Cove, Long Island. This was the first film made by Taylor Holmes Productions, Inc. Isham's play was the basis for several other films; the 1929 Paramount Famous Lasky film, starring Richard Dix and directed by Victor Schertzinger; several foreign-language versions of that film; and the 1941 Paramount film, starring Bob Hope and directed by Elliott Nugent.
