There are two slightly different edits of the film, one clocking in at 56 minutes, the other at 58 minutes. The 56-minute version does not feature the Monogram train logo and has upbeat jazz music playing over the opening credits. The 58-minute version does have the Monogram train and uses Mendelssohn's Wedding March as the opening music. See more »
Poor Henry! Spoilt Sheila (Nagel) has married him to save face after bridegroom Eric failed to turn up for their wedding. Henry (Hull) is in 7th heaven having loved Sheila all these years but learns to his dismay that she intends to go to Reno to sort things out as she really still wants to marry Eric. He's miserable on his honeymoon - only his clothes trunk makes it into the bridal chamber while he's banished to the couch and the sun-chair on the balcony. To add to his misery the 'late' groom Eric shows up making it three on a honeymoon. But Henry the lawyer is a man with a plan! He has been hiding his light under a bushel - he rides!, he dives!, he sings! - all to a chorus of Sheila saying "Oh Henry I didn't know you could do that!" Eric suddenly pales beside him as Henry has to swat away a bevy of female admirers while Sheila is overcome with jealousy. The three leads are most attractive and there is some witty dialogue and it reveals all its charms in 59 minutes. Oh Henry! I didn't know you could do that too!
