*"Contemporary reviewers credit both Page and Forrester with the story, but Paramount studio records credit only Page. Some exterior scenes were shot at Loon Lake, NY in the Adirondack Mountains.


While traveling on her honeymoon, newlywed Milly Morehouse overhears her husband Bob boast to his friend Dick Elliot that she was "easy to get," so Milly decides to get even. Slipping off the train, she wends her way to their nuptial country hotel and registers under a false name. There she meets Dick, who is wooing the indifferent Pauline Reid, and enlists him and a gang of ruffians in a kidnap scheme. Milly sends word to Bob through Dick that she has been kidnapped and is being held for a $5,000 ransom. When Dick returns with the news, Pauline idolizes him as a hero, and Bob raises the money to pay the ransom. The kidnappers turn out to be deadly serious and keep the money, but the lesson that Bob and Milly learned was worth the price."
