The 1929 comedy Twin Beds was the second of three versions of the 1914 stage farce by Margaret Mayo and Salisbury Field. The original story of a newlywed bride who is briefly lured from her honeymoon suite by a vainglorious opera singer has been realigned as a traditional "backstage" romance. Elsie Dolan (Patsy Ruth Miller), accidently finding herself in the office of songwriter Danny Brown (Jack Mulhall), achieves Broadway success with Danny's help. Marrying Danny out of gratitude, she is temporarily enchanted by her egotistical leading man Monty Solari (Armand Kaliz), leading to an evening of misunderstandings, door-slammings and hasty retreats under the bed when the very-married Solari wanders drunkenly into Danny and Elsie's apartment. Previously filmed in 1920, Twin Beds was memorably remade in 1942 with George Brent, Joan Bennett and Mischa Auer.
