Summary
"Kitty and Bob Brown part when he begins to take her for granted and engages in a flirtation with a vivacious blonde. Three years later, Mrs. Bouccicault, a wealthy and scheming socialite, finds that her granddaughter, Madge, is infatuated with Bob, though she is engaged to Bruce. The society matron calls on Kitty, whom she has met in Paris, to enlist her help in breaking up the infatuation. After mistaking many other men for her prey, Kitty discovers him to be none other than her divorced husband. Difficulties ensue, however, as Kitty becomes the focus of attention for all the male guests, and Mrs. Bouccicault spends most of her time chasing them away, finally sending for Kitty's children as a last resort. Consequently, Madge gives up her romance with Bob; and after some persuasion, he regains the affections of his former wife"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
