Man and first wife are reunited, but soon the inevitable plot complications start to kick in, including the revelation that Ellen spent 7 years alone on a Pacific island with a tanned, toned superman (Randolph Scott, no less) who now wants to take her back there. Grant now looks at her askance, not sure if he wants her back or what exactly took place on that island.
