Storyline

Mary Smith is picked up by the police and is about to be sentenced, in night court, to jail for vagrancy. But a stranger, Jimmie Martin, stands up and tells the judge that Mary was waiting for him and they were going to be married. A minister stands up and offers to perform the ceremony. Mary is appreciative to her 'new' husband for saving her from jail, but she sees him as a rich playboy who got drunk and decided to be gallant. She gives him instructions to move on, but he persists on taking care of his wife. And about the time she has decided that she loves him, his parents show up with lots of objections. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Be careful of the drunks you marry!
22 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

He's a wealthy bon vivant who gets drunk to deal with his snooty family, and she may or may not be a hooker. One night in court, he comes to her rescue when she is on the verge of being sent to prison for soliciting and the clever judge decides to marry them on the spot. Will sobriety and the morning after wake him up yo reality or true love? This decent pre-code drama is fast moving and a bit raunchy with the usual exuberant performance by Marie Prrvost as the heroin's best friend. Evelyn Knapp exudes both street smarts and innocence. Walter Byron may not be a typical leading man but is understandable and dashing. While the premise is slightly absurd, the plot moves along briskly and features fum, racy dialog. Not bad for what it is but no classic either.
