Outcast Souls was reportedly based on a true story in which a cop who arrested a pair of "neckers" in a parked car was sued for damages when it turned out that the spooning lovers were husband and wife. In the film, the hero and heroine are unmarried, but the circumstances are fundamentally the same. Arrested by an overzealous cop, the boy and girl try to avoid a night in jail by telling the desk sergeant that they intend to be married as soon as possible. Obligingly, the sergeant pulls a justice of the peace out of bed to perform the ceremonies. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to the young couple, the hero's father and heroine's mother likewise tie the matrimonial knot!
