Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This early directorial effort by William Wellman focuses on two married couples: Violet and Henry Gilbert (Dorothy Revier, Forrest Stanley) and Violet's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Belcher (Tom Ricketts, Ethel Wales). The Gilberts are newlyweds, while the Belchers have been spliced for years. When Mr. Belcher wanders away from his nest in the company of blonde vamp Charlotte (Maude Wayne), Violet begins to suspect that her own husband will follow suit -- and when she finds Henry's briefcase in Maude's roadster, she's sure of it. Actually, Henry has been trying to persuade his father-in-law to give up Charlotte, but try telling that to the easily excitable Violet. Originally released in January of 1926 by Harry Cohn's C.B.C. Pictures, When Husbands Flirt was reissued in July by C.B.C's successor, the fledgling Columbia Pictures.
