Elizabeth is thinking of running off with Edward Lutton and wants to see how well the marriage of her husband's parents has survived the years; what she sees drives her to elope with Lutton. Her husband impersonates the chauffeur, drives the couple to a secluded spot, and thrashes Lutton. He and Elizabeth then return home, resuming married life with a new understanding"--AFI catalog, 1921-1930.
