"After an extended visit with her sick mother in Paris, well-to-do Nancy Gibson sails home to New York, eager to see her home and her husband Donald. However, when she finally arrives at her estate, she is told by her sister-in-law, Sally Ross, and Sally's husband Bill, Donald's business partner, that Donald has fallen in love with a gold digger named Peggy Preston. In shock, Nancy, who had bragged about her marriage to her fellow passenger, Sir Guy Harrington, declares that she will never grant Donald a divorce. The wiser Sally, however, counsels her to be a 'smart woman' and play 'hard-to-get' around Donald. Desperate to win Donald back, Nancy takes Sally's advice and, when Donald returns home, acts nonchalant and understanding about his affair. Then, when a nosy neighbor shows up, Nancy denies Donald's adultery and insists that Peggy is a close friend who will be spending the weekend with her. To avoid further gossip, Nancy convinces Donald to invite Peggy and her mother to visit that weekend. Although heartbroken by the sight of Peggy, Nancy continues her ruse and casually mentions that the reason why she is indifferent about Donald's affair is because she fell in love with a man in Europe. On cue, roses arrive from Guy, and Donald's jealousy is piqued. Then, an uninformed Guy drives up and is greeted with passion by Nancy. After Nancy confesses her problem, she begs Guy to help her, but Guy, who is in love with her, refuses. During the weekend, however, Guy, who has been declared the richest bachelor in Europe, encourages Peggy's affection and, after several outings with her, sways her from Donald, whose financial status Bill has deliberately tarnished. Just before he is to leave with Peggy, Donald, who has been reminiscing warmly with Nancy, discovers Peggy embracing Guy. Concerned now for Nancy's feelings, Donald confronts Guy, who reveals that he has no interest in Peggy or in Nancy. As Nancy eavesdrops, Donald confesses to the self-sacrificing Guy that he is in love with his wife. Guy slips away, and Nancy shows Donald the affectionate letters she had written to him from Europe as proof of her undying love"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
