A rich uncle tries to set up with the ugliest...but richest woman in town...but the nephew refuses to the point where he risks being disinherited and the uncle threatens to get married himself... His friend...a doctor...sets him up with a fake sister so the nephew can marry who he chooses and still get his uncle's inheritance... The fake sister is being portrayed by the nephew's fiancee who does a fine job of acting timid and shy towards all men...but the only person not in on the gag originally is the nephew...nor is the uncle...thank goodness...

After the phony notary (the doctor's cousin) performs the wedding ceremony...the blushing bride turns out to be a total witch to the uncle and spending him out of house and home...and has even taken in a lover (after the nephew gets in on the gag)... After she's "caught" in the tryst...she states that she will never live in the same house as the nephew's fiancee... Not only does the uncle reinherit his nephew...he makes him drag his fiancee in...and reveals his new "wife" to be the fiancee... The friend comes in and states...any man who marries at his age is out of his mind...and everyone agrees with him...echoing his words...

No information if the nephew and his fiancee got married right away or later on though...but I have the feeling they did...
