Should a Girl Marry? never completely answers its own question, inasmuch as the story concentrates primarily on the male lead. Warren Hull stars as Dr. Robert Benson, so dedicated to his profession that he sorely neglects his ever-loving wife Margaret (Anne Nagel). Things come to a sorry pass when Benson is accused of murder through the machinations of his medical rival Dr. White (Lester Mathews). The outcome hinges on the behavior of hard-boiled Betty Gilbert (Mayo Mathot) and the revelation of a skeleton in Margaret's family closet. Critics in 1939 weren't exactly enchanted by Should a Girl Marry?, citing the film's corny dialogue and Anne Nagel's ever-disappearing British accent.
