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 »
A stood-up bride uses her lawyer as a stand-in groom.
When Eric, in his usual irresponsible manner, fails to show at his own wedding because he's sleeping off his bachelor party, his bride Sheila decides to go through with the wedding anyway. All she needs is another groom, and on short notice. She calls her lawyer, Henry, into the dressing chamber and hastily proposes to him.
As they leave for their honeymoon, however, Henry finds out that Sheila is simply trying to teach her fiancé a lesson, and intends to get a divorce as soon as the honeymoon is over. Henry, who has a long standing crush on Sheila, is visibly disappointed, and cleverly schemes to keep her.
The plot is amusing, and the characters, while somewhat cookie-cutter, are lovable. If you're a fan of vintage romantic comedies, I think you'll find it worth watching.
