Week-End Wives was one of a handful of British silent comedies starring pint-sized slapstick funster Monty Banks. In this one, divorce-bound Henri and Helene Monard (Jameson Thomas, Annette Benson) are forced to spend the weekend with their respective sweethearts, Gaby and Mons le Grand (Estelle Brody, George Gee). The two couples spend most of their time setting up romantic assignations and attempting to avoid their snoopy mates. Caught in the middle of all this is innocent-bystander millionaire Amnan (Banks). Week-End Wives was directed by Harry Lachman, normally a specialist in moody melodramas.
