"An Night in the Life..."
18 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

MARRIED BEFORE BREAKFAST is about one night. Recently rich Tom Wakefield (Robert Young) embarks on an adventure with Kitty Brent (Florence Rice); you see, he has to convince a stubborn milkman to purchase an insurance policy from Kitty's fiancé, Kenneth (Hugh Marlowe). If the milkman purchases the policy, he will be promoted, and he and Kitty can be married.

In order to go on this adventure, Tom must leave his own fiancée in the lurch for a while.

The movie is the night and the adventure. You want Tom and Kitty, both engaged to someone else, to hook up and… I won't give away the ending. But the adventure – with cops, cabbies, gangsters, firemen, and milkmen – is a delight.
