A gang of crooks led by Holden steals a government code, and Cyril Gordon ( Edmund Lowe ), a Secret Service agent who bears a strong resemblance to the gang leader, is assigned to recover the stolen documents. Cyril successfully impersonates Holden and recovers the papers. He also gets himself a bride when, in the name of Holden, he marries Celia Hathaway ( Carol Lombard ), a beautiful young woman who was about to sacrifice herself in matrimony to the gangster. Cyril discloses his identity to the girl, and they journey together to Washington, where Cyril reports to his superiors. Holden catches up with the newlyweds and traps them in a hotel room, but Cyril outfights Holden and escapes with his new wife. The gang is broken up, and Celia announces to Cyril that she would be honored to continue as his wife.
This 1925 silent comedy/drama was produced by the Fox Film Corporation, starring Edmund Lowe and a young Carol Lombard. The survival status of Marriage in Transit is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
