Plot summary

This section needs expansion. You can help by adding to it. (March 2013)

Stephanie (Lyn Wilde) and Terry (Lee Wilde) are two identical twins who have been split up since their parents divorced seven years before. Although identical in appearance, the twins are very different: Stephanie is shy but brilliant, while Terry is outgoing and loves dancing. When the twins finally meet in person, each envies the life style of the other. They decide, without telling their father Jeff (Preston Foster) or their mother Mary (Gail Patrick), to switch families for a day or two.

The switch quickly starts trouble, for both twins. Stephanie, disguised as Terry, is expected to win a jitterbug contest, but she cannot dance nearly as well as Terry. Terry, disguised as Stephanie, is expected to behave quietly and properly, but she just wants to have fun. Both boyfriends of the twins are surprised to see their girlfriends acting so different: Mickey is happy to see Stephanie (actually Terry) is more confident, while Jimmy is pleased to see Terry (actually Stephanie) is more gentle.

Mickey takes Stephanie to a charity event, where Stephanie surprises him with her dancing talent. Soon after, Mickey gets into a fight with a rude dancer, and the charity event erupts into a brawl. A reporter named Alice (Jeff's ex-girlfriend) photographs Stephanie dancing wildly and caught up in the fight, with plans to blackmail Stephanie's father, and force him to marry her. The twins team up with their new boyfriends to successfully outsmart Alice, reunite their parents, and find true love.[1]
