The Merry Wives of Reno are Madge (Margaret Lindsay), Bunny (Glenda Farrell) and Lois (Ruth Donnelly). Madge is a comparative newlywed who heads to the "divorce capital" of Reno, Nevada after a spat with her young husband Frank (Donald Woods). Likewise in Reno is Bunny (Glenda Farrell), who has a bad habit of settling arguments with her hubby Al (Frank McHugh) by breaking all the crockery over his head. As for Lois, she's been caught cheating on her spouse Tom (Guy Kibbee) -- and her paramour may well be either Frank or Al. All three ladies converge upon the same Reno hotel, where confusion reigns unchecked until their individual stories are resolved, both happily and otherwise. In keeping with the newly strengthened Production Code, Merry Wives of Reno isn't anywhere near as risque and racy as it might have been a year or so earlier.
