~Plot Synopsis~
Married during his furlough from the Royal Flying Corps, Maj. William Ridgewell jeopardizes his
marital happiness by taking his bride on an aerial honeymoon; and his leaving her with an awkward
male servant in a ridiculously masculine apartment serves to turn Diana to an affair with Owen
Ffolliott, a ne'er-do-well and hopeless fop. On the day of Armistice, Ridgewell receives a letter from
Diana suggesting that they get a divorce; and Archer, her lawyer, arranges for collusion between Diana
and Ridgewell, whereby his absence constitutes desertion. Because he loves her, Ridgewell agrees, but
before the legal time elapses he returns home and sleeps in Diana's bed, wearing her nightgown; she
tries to sleep on the couch but is driven by the cold to sleep with her husband. Ridgewell throws out
Owen and Archer the following morning and is reconciled with his wife.
