One of two Laszlo Kalmar-directed films released in tandem at Budapest's Forum Theatre in March of 1939 (the other was The Sun Shines), Nincesenek Veletlnek was retitled Accidents Don't Happen for English-language consumption. While on her honeymoon, newlywed Klari (Ida Turay) receives a most curious gift: a valuable ring, inscribed with the words "For Unforgettable Hours." Klari's husband Sinko (Joseph Juhasz) is convinced that the ring is proof positive that his blushing bride has had a checkered past. She claims that the gift was delivered to her by mistake, but he refuses to listen, whereupon the honeymoon ends before it even begins. By the time the mess is straightened out, Klari has found a much more agreeable mate in the form of a moonstruck Romeo named Paul (Laszo Szilasky). Accidents Don't Happen was based on a stage comedy by Endre Solt.
