Storyline

Margie Blake, who wants to get married young and have two dozen kids, has a flat tire and traveling salesman Tom Wilson, who believes in "loving 'em and leaving 'em" stops to help. They soon discover they are polar opposites and dislike each other very much. Oklahoma oilman Sam Sawyer and his new bride Emmy, on their way to honeymoon in Niagara Falls, come along and offer help and Sam gets the idea that Margie and Tom are married and having a lover's spat. Later when all are checking into the hotel, the befuddled manager, thanks to Sam who is still trying to get them to kiss and make up, gives them a room together which Marge and Tom don't realize, since Sam has given up his and Emmy's Honeymoon Suite in order to get them over their spat. Sam takes over and locks them in the suite together for the night and stands guard outside the room until they solve their marital problems. Sam has some of his own with the frustrated Emmy as they have put off their wedding for twenty years in order... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

And Down they Go!
13 March 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This weak little effort doesn't begin to use a fraction of the ability of its two leads, Slim Summerville and Zasu Pitts, in no small part because too much of the story concerns the two good-looking but uninteresting juveniles. The picture is one of Roach's one-hour 'streamliners' that he was concentrating on in this period; it took World War Two and contract work to stabilize the studio.

However, the little time they do get together -- in this honeymoon hotel movie -- is time well spent. The two were in ten movies together -- if you don't count ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, where they reshot all of Miss Pitts' scenes with another actress -- and they certainly worked together well. This was their last movie together. A pity they couldn't end on a higher note.
