"Just before the opening of his new Broadway show, famed actor Paul Orman is fitted with a new formal tail coat by his tailor. The tailor nervously admits that the coat was cursed by a dismissed cutter, who swore that it would bring misfortune to anyone who wore it, but Orman does not care. After a well-received performance, Orman instructs his valet, Luther, to drive him to the country estate of Ethel Halloway. Ethel was once Orman's paramour, but after the end of their affair, she married John Halloway, a rich big-game hunter. Luther believes that Orman is better off without Ethel, but the actor cannot resist engineering an impromptu rendezvous with her. Orman and Ethel alternately declare their love and suspicions about each other's motives, until he admits that he should never have broken with her, then persuades her to go to Brazil with him. Just after Orman calls his manager and instructs him to close the play, Halloway enters and menancingly shows Orman his favorite rifle. Halloway shoots Orman, and after stating that he did so accidentally, convinces Ethel to promise to testify that it was an accident. Ethel also tells Orman that she will support his version, that the shooting was deliberate, and Orman finally realizes that she lies to everyone and has no intention of ever leaving her husband for him. After asserting that Halloway missed him and that he was only pretending to be shot in order to reveal Ethel's false nature, Orman collapses in his car and instructs Luther to take him to the hospital.
