The story of a dress and the effects it has on the women who wear it begs the question of where is O.Henry when he is needed. "Nude at Midnight", a new and daring Paris style creation is worn by Gogo Mantaine to try and ensnare the Rajah of Kim-Kepore but he is attracted to Lisa, the girl who modeled the dress. Marion Parmelee dons the gown to charm her husband's retiring (as in quitting) boss, Patrick James Sullivan, into letting her husband, Jack Parmelee take over the business, but the boss' wife Nora, who really runs the business, has other ideas. The same model dress is worn by Betty Barnes, in an effort to attract her boss, lawyer Edgar Blevins, who is married to a dowdy wife, Cora, but the wife turns up wearing the same dress. Marta Jensen uses the dress to inveigle her reluctant sweetheart, Charlie Johnson into a marriage proposal. Since she also attracts the Rajah, her options expand.

After stealing a loaf a bread to feed a starving family, Jean Valjean is sentenced to ten years at hard labor as a galley slave. There he is taught to read and write by another prisoner and meets Javert, an obsessive policeman who was himself born to convict parents aboard a prison ship. After his release, Valjean is treated as a pariah but finally finds shelter in the home of a kindly bishop. Valjean repays the clergyman's generosity by stealing his silver plate. He is apprehended by the authorities and returned to the bishop but is amazed when the kindly old priest tells them that the valuable plates were a gift. This becomes a transforming experience for the ex-convict, who establishes himself under an assumed name in a small country village as factory manager and ultimately mayor. Unfortunately the newly-promoted Javert is assigned there as chief inspector. Although he doesn't recognize his old nemesis at first, the two clash over Javert's overzealous prosecution of the letter of the law. When a mentally challenged homeless man is arrested and accused of being Valjean, the conscience-ridden parole violator reveals his true identity to the court and the already suspicious Javert. Valjean is forced to abandon his property and with his adopted daughter again flee the relentless pursuit of Javert.

Ambassador Rico DeMarco is in Washington trying to raise a five-million dollar loan for his hard-pressed country, Lower Salamia. Filbert Filmore and his domineering wife are about to sign on the dotted line for the loan when DeMarco's vivacious daughter, Estelita, upsets the deal by accidentally knocking hot coffee over the papers---and Mrs. Fillmore, who leaves the house in a huff. The Washinton-resident spies of Lower Salamia's insurrectionist faction gleefully cable their leader that the loan attempt has failed and Viva la Revolution. Estelita, in her role as an amateur international financier, discovers that Fillmore is a great believer in astrology and, disguised as a gypsy fortune teller, she dupes him into believing that the stars are propitious for his making the loan, but Mrs. Fillmore's wild jealousy, when she discovers her woo-woo husband alone with the attractive young gypsy, causes Estelita to depart sans anti-revolution money. DeMarco tries to send his daughter back to Lower Salamia, but she takes off for Reno to see Tex Thompson,, a handsome young Nevada cattleman she met and fell in love with in a Washington night club. The efforts of her chaperon, timid Aunt Maria, to restrain her are unsuccessful. To keep her father from discovering her whereabouts, Estelita signs the hotel register in Reno as Mrs. Filbert Fillmore. A local reporter, sensing a big-money divorce in the making, files a story which leads Filbert to believe that his wife has left him, and he flies to Reno...with Mrs. Fillmore close on his heels. But the Reno-resident Lower Salamia insurrection-spies have plans to kidnap Mrs. Fillmore.

In ancient Bagdad, Hafiz is a beggar - self coined the King of Beggars - and a master of the slight of hand. He often likes to wander the streets late at night pretending to be a Prince, specifically of Hassir located in the farthest reaches of the empire. In the process, he has entered into a passionate romance with a beautiful woman, Jamilla. He is unaware that she is one of the queens of the Grand Vizier - the most powerful man in the empire - to who she was provided in a power deal with Macedonia, the deal agreed to by Jamilla only under the condition that she retain her independence. In turn, Jamilla knows that her lover is not who he says he is, she, however, not having any idea that he is mere street beggar. She doesn't mind his lies as they are a means to escape into a fantasy world away from the reality of life with the Grand Vizier. At home, Hafiz has told his daughter, Marsinah, since she was a child that she would marry a prince, rather than the reality of she probably marrying someone like a camel man. The story includes he having built a high wall in which to enclose her that only a prince could penetrate. However, unknown to her father, Marsinah, in peering over the wall, has fallen mutually in love with the son of the head gardener of the new Caliph, the ruler of all of Arabia. What she does not know is that her love is in reality the new Caliph, he who likes to wander the streets in disguise at night as a commoner to ascertain the true feelings of his subjects. The Caliph is unaware that Marsinah's father, who he knows is a beggar, is the man who saved him one night, the man calling himself the Prince of Hassir, which he knows is not the truth. Hafiz, in turn, does not know the man he saved is either the Caliph or that he is in mutual love with Marsinah. The Caliph plans to call the Grand Vizier in front of him on charges of corruption. In turn, the Grand Vizier plans to have the Caliph murdered to assume the throne himself. Seeing that his daughter now has womanly feelings, Hafiz knows he now has to make his story of her marrying a prince come to life. Using his skills of disguise and magic, Hafiz plans on arranging a marriage between Marsinah and the Grand Vizier, who he can see has his sights set on being the Caliph. With all these mistaken and unknown identities, what happens among this collective may come down to fate - kismet - which Hafiz mistakenly believes he can control.

Wyn hires Kitty to be his secretary, he the editor for his pet project, a magazine, which is funded by family money. Kitty's now deceased father, despite liking Wyn as a person, warned Kitty against falling in love with him, regardless of his outward intentions, as his type always returned to his own kind. If she believes her father, Kitty may come to the realization that if a union with Wyn were to ever happen, it would not only be to him but to his family and their traditions, they who may have some say in the matter.
