Synopsis
Jonathan Jinks and his friends Salty Sam and Charlie go to welcome opera star Aurelia Trentoni. Charlie, jealous of Jinks's success with women, provokes him into betting he can seduce Aurelia. They are immediately attracted to one another. Ashamed of the bet, Jinks tries to cancel it. Unsuccessful, he gives Charlie an IOU. In an attempt to speed Aurelia's luggage through Customs, Jinks offers money to an inspector. He is surprised as he is arrested for bribing a U.S. official. Jinks, out on bail, becomes secretly engaged to Aurelia. "Papa" Belliarti, Aurelia's uncle and teacher, enters with Charlie. Charlie, presenting the IOU, claims Jinks is a fortune hunter who has wagered he would marry Aurelia. Belliarti forbids Jinks to see Aurelia again. Aurelia returns from her triumphant debut in La traviata too distressed to attend the party given in her honor. Jinks appears, explains what has happened, and begs forgiveness. A policeman arrives looking for Jinks, who has missed his trial. Aurelia, playing the dying Violetta for the second time that evening, explains that Jinks was helping her to survive a recurrence of an old lung complaint. All the principals enter, bringing the party to Aurelia, and all ends happily.
