Lindy Baxter misses Lincoln Sinclair; in fact she's been missing Link since World War II when he vanished in the Pacific. A fall puts her into the hands and the arms of orthopedist Simon Fletcher. They set a wedding date despite her parents misgivings and the fact that the best man and his sister, the maid of honor, are respectively in love with the bride and the groom. On the wedding's eve, Link shows up with an enormous diamond ring and a box of money as his gift for the bride who he thinks is marrying him. A reporter comes with a strange story about another vanished man and Link's mother arrives with a question about an identifying birthmark. Then a cross between an aborigine and a savage shows up and he certainly resembles the missing Link (in more ways than one)! Who's who? What's what? This play will have audiences rolling in the aisles.
