Slim Summerville and Zasu Pitts star as Mark and Connie, a pair deceptively innocent-looking con artists. Connie has made a career out of orchestrating huge lawsuits, splitting the settlements with her equally shifty lawyer Mark. Their current scheme involves the framing of pompous J. B. Ogden (George Barbier), a self-styled arbiter of public morals. Love, Honor and Oh Baby is the only Summerville-Pitts vehicle in which the stars are cast as less than savory characters. Interestingly, the audience's sympathies are equally divided between the scammers and their victim; most everyone in the story is fairly likeable. The 1940 Universal comedy Love, Honor and Oh Baby is not a remake.
