Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Reginald Denny, one of Universal's top stars of the 1920s, tried to transfer his light-comedy formula to talkies with Embarrassing Moments. Hoping to fend off the advances of suitor Jasper Hickson (William Austin), heroine Marion Fuller (Merna Kennedy) claims she already has a husband. When the time comes to prove the existence of her imaginary mate, Marion persuades total stranger Thaddeus Cruikshank (Denny) to pose as hubby. It is understood, of course, that our hero is to keep his distance, and not to do anything as foolish as falling in love with Marion. And, of course, Thaddeus is true to his word -- not! Reginald Denny's silent-screen image as a go-getting young American was undercut by his pronounced British accent, and before long he was consigned to secondary roles, albeit good ones.
