At the Hotel Messina, a celebration for returning soldiers turns into an entertaining setting for young love and matchmaking. One young couple falls in love at first sight! Another pair is perfect for each other, but they refuse to believe it! So, a trick to get them to fall in love (or simply tolerate each other) becomes the dubious work of well-meaning friends. When villainous jealousy seeks to upset marriage plans, one bride is left at the altar! Will there ever be a wedding? Will it turn into a war of wits? Will the upright constable and his deputy foil the plot? Or will the bad guys get away— It may seem like it’s too much… But it’s just…Much Ado About Nothing!
