Peter Duluth and Iris, taking a turn for the serious as Iris leaves Peter, goes to Mexico where she falls in love with a lost genius and golden boy called Martin Haven. Peter, giving Iris her head, is left to handle the problem of Martin's wife, Sally, a classic example of a bitch,- of Martin's sister, Marietta- still entranced by her devotion to her brother, and the murder of Sally with blackmail to follow. Only when the enigmatic spell of the Havens is broken do Peter and Iris return to conjugal comfort. Not so playful this time, but just as expert.
