Blackwell North Amer
Millionaire Barley Salt has recently married Doris Dubois, the famous, slim host of TV's Artsworld Extra, but he hasn't quite reckoned with the fury of his ex-wife, Grace McNab Salt. Rejected and disgruntled, Grace has just emerged from jail for trying to run Doris over with her Jaguar in a supermarket parking lot. When all three attend socialite Lady Juliet's charity ball, a portrait by artist Walter Wells is auctioned off. It is a painting of the hostess wearing a necklace crafted by the world-famous Bulgari jewelers. Doris decides she must have a necklace just like the one in the portrait. Grace unexpectedly outbids Barley for the painting and Walter, impressed and flattered that Grace has bought his painting, makes a play for her. Doris goes to extremes to have the Bulgari necklace and Barley tries to keep from having to buy it; Grace and Walter fall into a passionate love affair, and everyone's lives turn upside down.
