Overview

His fiancée, Janet Jones, sees only one way out—Simon's twin brother, Peter. The idea does not sit well with Simon, for while he and his brother are identical in appearance (and doubled by the same actor), they are completely different in every other way and, for that matter, they cordially dislike each other. Still, Peter is a successful financier, reputedly a millionaire. The question is whether Peter will cooperate, but it so happens that this worthy is having some business difficulties of his own, and Simon's plea comes at an extremely advantageous time. He is only too glad to escape to the country for a while, provided that Simon will agree to impersonate him at a potentially stormy stockholders meeting which Peter has been dreading. So the switch is made. After Simon's retiring presence, the breezy Peter is a revelation to Janet, but then Simon manages to work his own magic with his brother's inamorata, a warmhearted strip-teaser named Bella Newell. From then on, the plot thickens uproariously as the two brothers attack each other's problems vigorously—and by their own devices.
