Description by OLDIES.com:
Dandy Tommy Valentine meets and falls for Barbara, the niece of Socialite Bedelia Smith, but fails to learn her name, so he is forced to consult a "Swami mystic" to learn her identity. Meanwhile Bedelia's lay-about nephew Charlie, who blames his late nights on a fictitious Hindu Prince he is entertaining finds himself pressed to bring his royal friend to guarantee the success of his mother's up coming soiree.
This offbeat comedy-drama concerns Tommy Valentine, a young man whose path crosses with that of Barbara, the niece of local socialite Bedelia Smith. Unfortunately, he neglects to learn her name, and in desperation decides to consult a mystic Swami to determine who she is. Meanwhile, Bedelia's slothful nephew Charlie spends his evenings entertaining an imaginary Hindu Prince and grows exhausted by the task, especially after the prince starts keeping him up late at night. When Charlie's mother decides to have a local soiree, Charlie suddenly gets pressured to bring the prince to the affair.
