Storyline

Rodney has just married the often engaged Juliette and they are both ready to leave on their honeymoon. But Clara show up and Rodney sneaks out to talk to her. Clara is blackmailing Rodney, as he knew her before Clara, and her 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. But Laura has never met Rodney so she does not know him. But in a year they get married on their way to Juliette's house for her marriage to Lucius. Everyone there thinks it is Rodney, but they will need to prove it before Rodney and Laura have their honeymoon. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

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.
