Dandy Tommy Valentine meets and falls for Barbara, the niece of Socialite Bedelia Smith, but fails to learn her name, so he is forced to consult a "Swami mystic" to learn her identity. Meanwhile Bedelia's lay-about nephew Charlie, who blames his late nights on a fictitious Hindu Prince he is entertaining finds himself pressed to bring his royal friend to guarantee the success of his mother's up coming soiree.
