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

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 »

Jerome Cowan In Madcap Comedy?!
26 March 2005 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

That dreadful casting error is only one of many. Cowan was a good character actor and perfectly adequate as a lead in mysteries. But his comic timing, at least based on this horrible mess, did not exist. He also looks terrible, with a very noticeable double chin.

Shirley Ross is exceptionally unappealing as the first of two women Dennis Morgan marries. She overacts and is generally thoroughly disagreeable.

Morgan is shown in a lot of beefcake shots. And he was a handsome man. He's fine here, though I personally could do without his singing.

Jane Wyaatt is pretty and sweet as Ross's Southern cousin, whom he marries while he has amnesia.

One of the few amusing bits is a bum's looking at a billboard and giving Morgan, who has no memory of who he is, the name F.H.A. Homes. (He is later called Happy.) One of the very least appealing is the shower that first makes Wyatt and Morgan, later Ross, appear in blackface.
