This delightful comedy tells of what happens in a very conventional English home when appealing little Mr. Pim, who has so much trouble with names, drops in one day on a small matter of business. The busines is soon forgotten when Mr. Pim announces that the former husband of the lady of the house, thought to be deceased, is alive. Since the lady is married now, she is a bigamist. Her present husband, always a trifle pompous and tyrannical, is upset no end. Then Mr. Pim passes by again; this time he confesses that he confused two names and it is safe to assume that the lady's first husband is dead, as they originally believed. Without telling her husband, the lady uses the knowledge as a weapon not only to get what she wants in the house but to force her husband to permit his niece to marry the young artist who loves her.
