Kay is a lonely widow, who after three year, has been unable to break free from the memory of her late husband Jolly, a charming, but unfaithful Broadway choreographer. But finally, Kay falls in love with Rupert, a professor of Egyptology. Not long before their wedding day, Kay is visited by Jolly's ghost, who selfishly makes fun of her for marrying Rupert, who he characterizes as dull. Kay does marry Rupert, but Jolly refuses to go away, which results in an odd threesome.
