Adapted by Sonya Levien and Sam (S. N.) Berhman from a play by Rachel Crothers, As Husbands Go charts the romantic misadventures of Lucille Lingard (Helen Vinson). Slightly bored by her marriage to businessman Charles Lingard (Warner Baxter), Lucille vacations in London, where she nearly has an affair with an upper-class twit named Ronald (G. P. Huntley Jr.). Returning home, Lucille assumes that she can forget all about her brief and desultory fling. That's when she discovers that Ronald and her husband Charles are now fishing companions! Mostly filmed on location in Iowa, As Husbands Go originally ran 80 minutes, but was hastily pared down to 65 minutes after a disastrous sneak preview. The biggest laughs are earned by Warner Oland, briefly shedding his "Charlie Chan" screen image to play an elderly European roue.
