1949 Hong Kong. Married to other people, American Carolyn Carwin and French shipping executive Paul Duvel are having an affair. Carolyn admits that she never loved or has even really got to know her British medical doctor turned bacteriologist husband Walter Carwin, she having accepted his marriage proposal solely to stoke what was her damaged ego at the time. Walter, in turn, has always loved Carolyn despite being aware of her vanity and general narcissism. Carolyn suspects that Walter knows about the affair, a suspicion that is ultimately confirmed when he confronts her about it. In an ultimatum by Walter concerning the infidelity, Carolyn feels she has no other option but to agree to move to rural May Tan Fu on the Chinese mainland with him, there where a cholera outbreak has occurred. She has no desire to live in a remote backwater, let alone one where disease is running rampant. The health crisis, to which Walter feels his background is well suited in assisting, is something on which to focus in taking his mind off his and Carolyn's marital problems. There, they are befriended by fellow Brit Tim Waddington, an acquaintance of Paul's who quickly learns of Carolyn and Walter's marital problems. Beneath Tim's vulgar exterior is a man with a true heart of gold. Although not directly exposed to him at work, Carolyn gets a new perspective of Walter, of herself and of their marriage in this new surrounding, but it may be too late for them to have that happily ever after based partly on Walter's disdain for her in what she's done in Hong Kong.

Largely fictional account of the last few years in the life of matinée idol Rudolph Valentino. Regardless of what he was doing professionally, women were attracted to him, and he in turn loved them back which often got him into trouble. After voluntarily leaving a dancing gig due to a dispute with the troupe's leading lady, that gig which brought him to the US, he needed to work a series of odd jobs before movie director Bill King discovered him working as a taxi dancer/gigolo in an upscale dance club. In reality, King's companion that evening, his professional and personal leading lady Joan Carlisle, unofficially discovered Valentino earlier when they had a romance aboard the transatlantic crossing which brought Valentino to the US. At the time, she was traveling incognito under the name Sarah Gray. Valentino's movie career was somewhat stalled until he campaigned for and won the leading role in The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (1921), after which his career skyrocketed. By his side for most of this period was his friend, Luigi Verducci, who he met at one of those odd jobs. He remained in love with Joan over the remainder of his life, often acting solely in her best interest, but she in return was hot and cold toward him, the coldness due to her belief that he was often using her to further his acting career. It was also both their fondness for King that they often repressed their feelings for each other, but which made working with each other difficult if not impossible.

Both living in New York City, successful artist Phillip Gayley, most renowned for his series of Gayley Girls (swimsuit models in evocative poses), and Ellen Gayley, a one time Gayley Girl, have been divorced for one year. They each have six month custody of their only child, now seven year old Phillippa Gayley, nicknamed Flip. Flip loves both her parents and misses the other when she's not with that parent for that six months, especially when they have to say goodbye at the end of the six months. Phil didn't want to get the divorce, and Ellen only went through with it, convinced by her judgmental mother, Mrs. Hamilton, that Phil had a constantly wandering eye, most specifically with whoever the Gayley Girl of the day. Mrs. Hamilton would rather see Ellen married to someone more stable and secure, like her stuffy and officious lawyer, Rex DeVallon. However, both Phil and Ellen still love each other, and without telling the other would deep in their hearts want to reconcile. Beyond Flip, another person who does whatever he can to get them back together is their mutual friend Luigi, in whose restaurant they met, fell in love and got engaged. However as Gayley Girls still exist - the current, Nancy Graham, who sees herself as the future Mrs Gayley - as Rex is still in Ellen and Mrs. Hamilton's lives, as Mrs. Hamilton still dislikes Phil for what she believes he did to her daughter, and as Luigi's actions generally backfire, a road to a happy ending for Phil, Ellen and Flip may have a few bumps along the way. An added complication is the entrance of Flip's pen pal, US Marine Corporal Fenwick Lonkowski, who is in New York on his first leave in eighteen months.
