Previously teamed for the popular MGM farce Adam and Evil, stars Lew Cody and Aileen Pringle and director Robert Z. Leonard were reunited for Tea for Three. Cody plays Carter Langford, who has good reason to suspect that his wife Doris (Pringle) is stepping out on him in favor of family friend Phillip Callamore (Owen Moore). Taking things in stride, Langford offers to cut cards with Callamore. High card gets Doris, while "low card" agrees to kill himself. When Langford draws the low card, he considerately books passage on an ocean liner for the purpose of jumping overboard, but at the last minute Doris returns to his side. Much funnier than its synopsis would indicate, Tea for Three was based on a play by Karl Sloboda.
