Genre: Comedy
74 min


The bride is now cutting

herself a piece of cake.

Next year the groom will

cut himself a piece of neck.

Old Jay Hogarth is a good old soul.

Old Jay Hogarth is a good old soul.



Quiet please, quiet please.

Quiet, quiet, quiet.

Someone called for a speech.

What's that got to do with you?

I'm the best man.

The best-man always wins.

That's why I'm a bachelor.

Forgive them. They know

not what they're up against.

Now that this couple have entered into

a state of coma - I mean matrimony.

I would like to have them tell us

what they intend to do about it.

Well, not that it's anybody's business.

Especially the worst

best-man I ever saw.

But Laura and I are going to be

the most modern couple imaginable.

We intend to retain our

separate individualities.

That's a good trick

even if you don't do it.

And you?

We intend to take marriage

apart and see what makes it tick.

For the benefit of the less intelligent

among you .. I will translate.

Nevertheless, I will translate.

This is a marriage of advanced ideas.

A bigger and better matrimony.

There will be individual latchkeys,

toothbrushes and telephones.

But, there will be community gin.

Now that you have heard

both sides of this argument.

Your applause will determine the winner.

Now suppose you sit down and

give those brains of yours a rest.

The best man will give the

floor to a better best man.

Laura darling, hadn't

you better be on your way?

Yes, mother.

A good idea.

I allow my wife.

All liberties. But I do not

wish her to associate ..

With hoodlums, scoffers and whatnots.

Mister, whatnots to you!

Oh .. Mrs Hogarth.

Yes, mister Hogarth?

I'm afraid our wedding was

a big success. Yes.

It interested me more than any

wedding I've been to in ages.

Do you love me?

So much that I'm scared.


Sort of floating .. delirious.

I'm so happy.

We'll have the longest

honeymoon in captivity.


Isn't it wonderful when two

great intellects like these unite?

Oh, go to ..

Naughty, naughty.

Come on, girls.

Say Jay, where is that little red book

of yours with all the telephone numbers?

Now you know I never had any ..

Don't give me that.

I'll be big-hearted. I'll let you

use it whenever you want to.

And what's more, I'll add

a few numbers myself.

Where is mother?

She didn't seem exactly pleased

with the way you were being razzed.

That kind of a spat wasn't a bit funny.

It seems to me the honors

went to you and Jay.

Perhaps I haven't done some solid

thinking on this marriage subject.

Do you mind if I give you

one little piece of advice?

Go ahead if you like.

Just one little crack?


Well then ..

Whether you believe it or not.

Pretend to yourself that

marriages are made in heaven.

Hang on to your husband.

Even when you think

you are a fool to do it.

Is that how you think a wife should be?

That's how I think love should be.

Oh for heaven's sake, Kate.

I'll shut up now.

Well, what's up?

I think she's been going batty lately.

Come on, get out.




Can you come in.

Right away.

Well mother, you can relax.

I'm off your hands.

Well, I hope so.

Especially after all that twaddle

about the modern ideas of marriage.

People may sneer at

marriage and its restrictions.

But nobody yet has ever found

a satisfactory substitute for it.

You talk as if Jay and I aren't serious.

How long have we planned

our marriage, darling?

Why, ever since we were kids.

I want you two to get all the

happiness you can out of life.

And that's not easy.

With all these crazy ideas

about "separate individualities".
