A bitter bachelor and founder of a club, The Night Club, a free organization of unrepentant bachelors, Bob White finally decided to get married. But the wedding goes awry, because the bride leaves him alone at the foot of the altar. The bad experience makes him a misogynist and, when he learns that he can inherit a million dollars only if he marries this Grace Henderson, he prefers to give up that mountain of money in order not to get married. Some time later, Bob meets Grace by chance: ignoring who she really is, he falls in love with her. But the woman, having learned of Bob's identity, believing that he wants to marry her only to get hold of the inheritance, rejects him. Bob discovers that if he dies, the inheritance will go to Grace. He then decides to sacrifice himself and tries to kill himself, but his attempts, fortunately, all fail. Grace finally realizes Bob's true feelings and agrees to marry him.
