Married Bachelor is a cute little MGM situation comedy, designed for the bottom half of the studio's double bills. Robert Young plays an married author who has penned several books on how to stay single. Naturally, he has to pose as a bachelor for publicity purposes...but wife Ruth Hussey is expecting. The only other leading-man material in the cast is the feckless Lee Bowman, so it is he who must pose as Hussey's husband. Married Bachelor was adapted by future MGM head man Dore Schary from a story by Manuel Seff (we don't know if Seff was married or not).
