Storyline

A husband, in Minerva Booth's opinion, is a necessary evil, like a boll. After her marriage to Milton she straightway forgets him in a real estate business she and her mother, Virginia Stratton, have started. Milton Stratton, another henpecked husband, and Raymond Bronson, a mutual friend, picket the women's office. By intercepting prospective purchasers and buying them off, the men finally cause the budding real estate women to go bankrupt. The latter then turn to their husbands fearfully with pleas for forgiveness, and apologies for losing so much money. Booth and Stratton think the money well spent, however, for it has brought them back their wives. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
