Westerner William Fairbanks finds himself disinherited after marrying an artist (Dorothy Revier. To support his new wife, Fairbanks turns pugilist and enters a three-round bout with pro-fighter Jack Dugan (real-life boxer Al Kaufman). Fairbanks emerges the winner and returns to the homestead with both wife and a $1000 prize. More a boxing melodrama than a western, Marry in Haste was but one of a series of potboilers teaming Fairbanks (no relation to Doug) with Dorothy Revier, a titian-haired WAMPAS Baby Star of 1925. A former dancer, Revier later played Mylady de Winter opposite Douglas Fairbanks' man in the Iron Mask (1929), one of the last of the great silent epics.
