Previously teamed for a number of boudoir farces like Getting Gertie's Garter and Up in Mabel's Room, star Marie Prevost and director E. Mason Hopper once more pooled their talents in Blonde for a Night. Prevost plays the dowdy brunette wife of roving husband Harrison Ford, who prefers to spend his evenings with beautiful blondes. On the advice of cosmetician Franklin Pangborn, Prevost dons a blonde wig and steps out for a night on the town on her own. Sure enough, Ford fails to recognize Prevost, and spends the entire evening trying to put the make on his own wife. The plotline for this 7-reel comedy was later boiled down to 20 minutes by Charley Chase in The Chump Takes a Bump (1939).
