Three soldiers, two British and one American, are recorded as legally dead. Two of them, Jimmie Gubbins and William Jones, the American, have good cause to remain dead. Jimmie Gubbins cannot come back to life, for his mother has collected his insurance. Jones is wanted by the police of his college town for the use of his father's bonds to pay his gambling debts. Nobody knows about Spoofy, but he is evidently an aristocrat who has developed kleptomania. Jimmy brings his pals to his home in London. But the poor mentality of Spoofy is the means of bringing everything to rights. If you would know whose baby he kidnaps, whose house he robs, whose jewels he steals, and what lady he finally meets, all through his endeavors to repay his kindly friends, the play gives satisfactory explanation.
