On the day of her wedding a young woman's fiancé doesn't show up, sleeping off the results of the previous night's wild bachelor party. Miffed, the woman decides to go ahead with the wedding anyway to teach her fiancé a lesson, so she calls her lawyer, Henry, and has him stand in for her missing groom. She intends to divorce her new "husband" at the first opportunity, but Henry--who has been in love with her for a long time--is determined to win his "wife's" hand. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Did Anne Nagel Marry the Wrong Man?
4 October 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Stood up at the alter by an absent-minded groom, attractive Anne Nagel (as Sheila Curtis) decides to teach her intended a lesson by marrying handsome lawyer Warren Hull (as Henry Tuttle), instead. After watching wayward fiancé Henry Mollison (as Eric Reynolds) stew in his juices, Ms. Nagel plans to divorce Mr. Hull and marry Mr. Mollison. As it turns out, Hull has secretly been in love Nagel for years, and wants to keep her as his wife. While honeymooning with Hull, Nagel begins to make up with Mollison, who realizes his mistake. Meanwhile, Hull is determined to win his wife's love.

"A Bride for Henry" is a fluffy, forgettable comedy. It's managed well by Dorothy Davenport (the widow of Wallace Reid), director William Nigh, and its triangle of players - as long as you don't think too hard about what's going on. Nagel, more well-known as a second-stringer, is a lovely leading lady; she doesn't look like someone you'd leave at the alter. Hull sings a lick, and shows off his physique by the pool. After Hull demonstrates his diving board form, a bevy of swimsuit models show off their hourglass figures; alas, the state of the film isn't sharp enough to appreciate every curve.
