Storyline

After only 11 hours of marriage, Annabelle and her husband separate-not knowing what each other truly looks like. Annabelle is given stocks in a mining enterprise by her husband and told not to part with them. Annabelle, an extravagant spender, is forced to give the stocks to her husband's millionaire rival. Hearing that her husband is returning home, Annabelle poses as a cook at her husband's rival's home. Her husband arrives but is unrecognizable to Annabelle. He's now working as a captain for his rival. Annabelle finds herself falling for this mysterious captain. Written by Kelly

Extant 10 minute reel inconclusive
29 May 2013 | by bbmtwistSee all my reviews

The one extant reel is inconclusive. The plot is ridiculous. How could a character not recognize her husband, regardless of whether they only spent eleven hours together?

And what an absurd way to get out of town, posing with friends as a cook, gardener and other staff for a Long Island estate.

MacDonald is her usual vivacious self. McLaglen is unusually charming. The others are satisfactory.

The reel consists of two scenes - MacDonald and McLaglen meeting in a hotel lobby, followed by lunch and the plot to disappear with friends to Long Island.
