Cast & Crew
John Battleby Watts regrets taking his wife to London when she insists on having an expensive necklace. He purchases it, but then, to punish his wife without antagonizing her, he buys a fake one to give to her instead. While flirting with chorus girl Sally Atkins, however, he gives her one of the necklaces, and later realizes that, mistakenly, it was the real one. His wife, not having a jeweler's eye, is delighted with the imitation, but John envisions his marriage ending when she insists on declaring it at customs. John quickly buys back the necklace from Sally, but still winds up with a phony one, because a pawnbroker secretly had exchanged fake jewels for Sally's real ones. The phony necklace saves John, however, when detectives, certain that he was a jewel smuggler, end their surveillance after determining the necklace's real value. Later, a confused John smooths things over with his even more confused wife.
