Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The screenplay for Beware of Bachelors was credited to Mark Canfield, but it was penned pseudonymously by future movie mogul Darryl F. Zanuck. Here again is the old saw about the young couple who stand to inherit oodles of money if they can stay married for an entire year. Both hero William Collier Jr. and heroine Audrey Ferris swear eternal devotion, but their scheming cousin, who'll get the money by default in the event of a divorce, schemes to break up the couple's happy home. To this end, seductress Margaret Livingston is dispatched to lure Collier away from the nest. But with the help of an epicene perfume salesman, Ferris wins back her hubby and claims the dough.
