A lawyer who is up for a partnership is visited by a school chum who lives by sponging off classmates. He blackmails the lawyer into putting him up on the very night the boss is coming for dinner whereupon the wife leaves. The sponger discovers that the lawyer's degree is a fraud. A model is hired to play the wife's, a dumb beauty whose attempts to help backfire. More trouble erupts when the wife returns. Fortunately the boss thinks such a devious man would make a good lawyer!

"A hilarious farce, sexy but nice...a bright comedy with witty dialogue...one just can't help laughing!" - Syracuse Post-Standard

"Jack Sharkey has a hit on his hands!" - Kup's Column

"A refreshing revelation...clean, sparkling comedy...almost breathless comedy, except the audience needs its breath for the next laugh. Recommended for the whole family. Waves of laughter rolled over the performers on the stage. A five-pointed satellite that promises to sail onto Broadway and shine there for a long time!" - Henderson/Kennebec Journal
