They return to his backwoods home where she discover he has six brothers - all living in his cabin. Milly sets out to reform the uncouth siblings, who are anxious to get wives of their own.

They are brought back together by Cole Porter who has written a musical version of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. The couple seem to act a great deal like the characters they play.
