Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Wickedness Preferred was another of MGM's popular Lew Cody-Aileen Pringle star vehicles. This time around, Cody is cast as novelist Anthony Dare, while Pringle is his efficiency-expert wife Kitty. When their money runs out, the Dares set up housekeeping in Central Park, which is fun for a while but gets awfully tired awfully soon. The marriage is briefly threatened by the arrival of blonde vamp Baby Burton (Mary McAllister), but Anthony and Kitty ultimately decide to give their union a second chance. The opening title of Wickedness Preferred says it all: "Marriage is like a cafeteria. You take the first thing that looks good and pay for it later."
