Much married American movie mogul Ivor Llewellyn depends on his friends at Bachelors Anonymous to keep him out of romantic entanglements on his trip to London. First, they arrange for Joe Pickering to be his bodyguard. Then his lawyer, Ephraim Trout, is sent to England to help fend off the actress Vera Dalrymple who is determined to ensnare Llewellyn. All seems to be going well. But when devoted bachelor Trout takes it upon himself to thwart a romance between Pickering and a beautiful journalist, he sets in train a series of events which end in more than one marriage including his own.
It was Alcoholics Anonymous that gave the founding fathers of Bachelors Anonymous the idea. When a member feels the urge to take a woman out to dinner becoming too strong, he seeks out the other members of the circle and tells them of his craving, and they reason with him, and the madness passes
