His Jazz Bride was based on Beatrice Burton's novel The Flapper Bride, leaving no doubt as to the decade in which this film was made. Bored by her conservative husband Dick (Matt Moore), fun-loving Gloria Gregory (Marie Prevost) kicks up her heels and goes on a pleasure cruise with her best friend. Unbeknownst to Gloria, her friend's husband, a corrupt government inspector, has accepted bribes to overlook certain safety hazards aboard the steamship. Sure enough, the boat sinks, compelling Dick to man a speedboat in hopes of rescuing Gloria. Chastened by the experience, Gloria promises to stop looking for thrills outside her marriage and returns to her wifely responsibilities at home.
