Description by OLDIES.com:
Frumpy Kitty Brown is a devoted wife - until she discovers her husband has a sweetie on the side. So Kitty throws the bum out and heads for the beauty parlor. Three years later, now-glamorous Kitty accepts grande dame Bouccy Bouccicault's invitation for the weekend. The plan: Bouccy's granddaughter is being romanced by a very attractive older man. Couldn't Kitty please win him away? Imagine Kitty's surprise when the attractive older man turns out to be her ex-husband! Screen diva Norma Shearer plays Kitty, managing the ugly-duckling-to-swan transformation with style. But it's Marie Dressler, playing Bouccy, who steals the show, knitting like Madame Defarge and quipping like Oscar Wilde.
In this romance, a disillusioned wife, learning that her husband has been unfaithful, divorces him and moves to Paris where she is changed from a frowsy hausfrau to a sexy, sophisticated lady. A wealthy dame asks her to help destroy the affair between her granddaughter and the woman's ex-husband. The woman agrees to do it and returns to the U.S. where she hosts a large party. Among the guests are her ex-husband and his lover--the granddaughter. The wife has become so lovely, that her former spouse does not at first recognize her. When at last he does, their romance begins anew.
