The Three Married Men are Peter Cary (Roscoe Karns), Bill Mullens (William Frawley) and Bill's brother Jeff (Lynne Overman). Actually, at the beginning of the story, Peter is about to wed Jeff and Bill's sister Jennie (Mary Brian). Not wishing to invite Peter into their family, the Mullens boys try to scare him out of marrying Jennie by telling him horror stories of their own unhappy marriages. They do their job well, and soon the engagement is rent asunder -- whereupon Jeff and Bill realize they've made a mistake and try to bring the couple back together. Three Married Men was co-scripted by celebrated Broadway wit Dorothy Parker and her then-husband Alan Campbell.
