And so they were married for eighteen years--Shelley (""birth, breeding, and beauty"") and David (working class and ever on the road to wealth and power). And now, after three children, David has taken off for the States with most of their money to live with another woman, Whoop and halloo! and Shelley is off in pursuit across the wide Atlantic from England to run both offenders to their lairs. Incognito, Shelley locates blond and beautiful Other Woman, Candice, and palship blooms while Shelley refuels for a showdown via an affair with an exracing car fancier who woos her with lilacs. Shelley finally unmasks (""I came to get you""), and having routed both her boredom and David's, she brings home the brush. A slovenly reprise of all those decades-old matinee tidbits in which the O.W. gets hers--but harmless.
