The title tells all in the independently produced romantic drama Marriage on Approval. Set just before the repeal of Prohibition, the story concerns a young man (Donald Dillaway) who, while stewed to the gills, marries the equally besotted heroine (Barbara Kent). Upon sobering up, the hasty bridegroom realizes that, not only has his marriage been consummated, but the girl isn't even aware that she is married. He decides to court her anew to see if she is a worthy missus, but in the end it is she who decides to give the union a chance. This forgotten little item is based on an equally obscure novel by Priscilla Wayne.
