When Worthington Smythe appeared in New York to present himself to his maiden aunts, on the day of the family memorial service, he was quite too intoxicated to be acceptable. With the best intentions possible, the family attorney found himself introducing as Smythe and attractive young man who said he came from Crumble's funeral parlors. From that essential point, the farce gambols through the heart of young Amelia Tweedles, who knows very little about men. There is a wild escapade in which one of the maiden aunts figures. The real Worthington Smythe shows up on the scene and, out of the chaos that follows, comes the happy ending of the love story of the gent from the funeral parlors and pretty Amelia, who was scheduled to become a spinster but had her own ideas on that subject.
