The charismatic husband-wife screen team of Francis X. Bushman and Beverly Bayne were starred in this lightweight romantic comedy. Bushman plays Peter Warburton, a young stockbroker who is "married" to his business. Similarly, Virginia Parke (Bayne), the pretty ward of Peter's foxy uncle Henry (Charles Sutton), is too devoted to her pet Pomeranian to bother herself with romance. With the help of the twin children of his housekeeper Mrs. McGrogan (Jessie Stevens), Uncle Henry contrives to bring Peter and Virginia together -- without their realizing that their romance has been carefully "stage-managed." The expertly crafted screenplay for A Pair of Cupids was written by Luther Reed, who later became a top comedy director.
