The International House hotel in Wuhu, China, is hosting the debut of Dr. Wong's latest invention: a television-like device he calls a "radioscope." From around the world, agents and collectors, including Professor Henry Quail (W.C. Fields), arrive to purchase the rights to the invention--or perhaps steal it. Elsewhere in the hotel, a young man is due to wed his blushing bride, if only he can stop falling ill. When the groom breaks out in a rash, the hotel guests are quarantined together.
