Storyline

Rodney has just married the often engaged Juliette and they are both ready to leave on their honeymoon. However, Clara showed up and Rodney sneaks out to talk to her. Clara is blackmailing Rodney, as he knew her before Juliette. Clara's accomplice hits Rodney over the head when he refuses to pay. This causes amnesia and the only name Rodney can find in his pockets is Laura Anders - who is Juliette's cousin. Laura had never met "Rodney" so she does not know him. Laura and "Rodney", still not remembering who is really is, get married on their way to Juliette's house. When "Rodney" is recognized everyone tries to keep Laura and "Rodney" from starting their honeymoon. Mayhem ensues. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>, A.Nonymous

Trivia

The onscreen "work" by Yves Mirande and Mirande Mouézy-Éon was a play; its production has not been determined. The English adaptation by Seymour Hicks was produced in London, England, UK with the title "Mr. What's His Name", and on Broadway, New York City, New York, USA with the title "The Matrimonial Bed". The American version opened on 12 October 1927, but had only 12 performances. Its cast included Clay Clement, John T. Murray, Vivien Oakland, Lennox Pawle and 'Lee Patrick', who is also in this movie. See more »

Goofs

The car Clara and Chet drive up to the cliff is not the one that actually goes over and crashes on the sea-side rocks below - it's an older make and model (and much less expensive for the studio). See more »

I hope -I- get amnesia after seeing this!
6 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an insanely implausible and stupid concoction about a guy marrying one woman, getting amnesia, then marrying her cousin. Dennis Morgan and Jane Wyatt, certainly serviceable performers, are at their worst here -- thanks mainly to the idiotic script and perversely inane dialogue. But the real showstoppers are Jerome Cowan and Shirley Ross, who manage to hambone their ways through this like it was dollar-ninety-eight night at the dinner theatre. Worse performances in a film from a major studio I don't recall ever seeing. The wonderful Willie Best and Louise Beavers are called upon to do some unfortunate (even for the time) racial comedy, and the ever-reliable Lee Patrick gets to be arch for no reason and to spout one of the more wince-causing racial jokes. This one's a waste of time, unless it's to catch Cornel Wilde in a brief and very early appearance as a sort of heavy. Embarrassing on almost all counts.
