Descriptions

A young married man at the dinner table describes gleefully a performance of "Salome" that he has witnessed and announces his intention of seeing "The Devil." This shocks not only his wife, the spinster aunt joins with her father and mother in roasting the plays to a finish. Unknown to each other the women slip out of the house to see "Salome" and the men to see "The Devil." The next morning everybody os "Devil crazy" and "Salome-mad," especially the negro cook who creates all kinds of excitement until police and fire department take matters in hand.
