Synopsis

Playwrights Bob and Carol Sterling, whose real names are Mr. and Mrs. Horace Crump, decide to separate, but reconcile during their divorce hearing and resolve to rekindle their marriage by returning to the Sierra Vista Hotel at Emerald Lake, where they first met. Carol insists, however, that they reenact their meeting exactly, and proceed as though they are single. On the train to Emerald Lake, Bob meets band singer Lorraine Logan, also known as Jenny Hockaday, and the two are mistaken for newlyweds by their fellow passengers. Carol, driving alone, meets a stranded motorist, cattle rancher Big Boy Carson, and offers him a ride to Emerald Lake. Once at the resort, Carol becomes jealous of Bob's relationship to Lorraine, and in turn, encourages the attentions of Big Boy. Later that night, Bob meets Carol in her room and insists that they return home. The next day, however, Lorraine discovers Bob's true identity and demands to audition for the playwright. Carol overhears the audition and mistakes it for a romantic interlude. In retalition, Carol agrees to go with Big Boy to visit the family of his friend, George Thomas. Bob confronts Big Boy upon their return and ends up with a fat lip. Later, Carol and Big Boy go back to the Thomas home, so that Big Boy, dressed as Santa Claus, can bestow gifts and toys upon his impoverished friends. Bob goes in search of the couple and is arrested when, after finding them, he punches hotel manager Cathcart and pushes a motorcycle policeman. Bob is brought before the court of Judge Wilkins, but before he is sentenced to years in prison by the angry judge, Carol confesses to the judge that they are married and all charges are dropped. Bob and Carol reconcile, and she takes him to visit the Thomases, so that they too can learn the secret of a happy "horse and buggy" marriage.
