Honeymoon Flats was based on a story by Earl Derr Biggers, of Charlie Chan fame. Haughty Mrs. Garland (Kathlyn Williams) is unhappy that daughter Lila (Dorothy Gulliver) has married junior executive Jim Clayton (George Lewis). Putting on the old "But dear, I'm only trying to help you" act, Mrs. G. does everything she can to break up Lila's marriage. The old busybody is finally put in her place by long-suffering Mr. Garland (Phillips Smalley). In the tradition of such stage pieces as 45 Minutes From Broadway and Too Many Cooks, Honeymoon Flats has a lot of fun at the expense of the new phenomenon of "suburbia."
