The Short

Plot: The boys are discouraged when their girlfriends break up with them. But each of them forgets his troubles when they overhear actress Thelma Todd rehearsing a death scene for an upcoming play.

Thelma takes joy in playing with their affections, especially after they tell her about their failed romances. The jealous ex-girlfriends overhear the 'love-making' and quickly take their men back.
