Nobody really takes a Vacation from Love in this MGM programmer, though it's not from lack of trying. Dennis O'Keefe and Florence Rice star as young marrieds Bill and Patricia Blair. Have left her family's wealth behind to struggle along on Bill's salary, Patricia comes to regret her decision when her husband immerses himself in his work, totally neglecting his domestic life. The couple separates, with every intention of finalizing the split in divorce court. Despite formidable opposition from handsome Mark Shelby (Truman Bradley) and gorgeous Flo Heath (June Knight), Bill and Patricia finally realize that they're still in love with each other, and only with each other. The obviousness of the storyline is leavened somewhat by the sparkling supporting-player contributions of Reginald Owen, Ed Brophy and the ineffable Herman Bing.
