Additional Info

Harry and Gwen are going to a charity masquerade ball. Harry's costume has gone astray. Gwen persuades him to wear an old dress of her aunt's. Harry tries on the dress. The doorbell rings. Gwen opens the door. Harry is discovered dressed as a woman by Wilbur Wilberforce, an upright business man from Chicago, whom Harry hopes will save his advertising agency from bankruptcy. Harry panics and pretends to be "Hilary." Things get rather sticky when Wilberforce seems to be enamored of "Hilary."
