Consolation Marriage 1931
Shopgirl Mary Brown and newspaperman Rollo Porter agree "It's a swell night for a cry." When they meet after their respective sweethearts marry others, all they seek is a convenient shoulder for consolation.
Drawn together by a sense of humor and shared losses, Mary and Rollo wed in an "open marriage" - an arrangement not binding each other for life but as cozy comfort against being alone. Like other pre-code melodramas, pitfalls arise: the arrival of a baby girl and regular reminders of those past loves - particularly when both former flames (blonde socialite Myrna Loy and disillusioned pianist Lester Vail) return on the Porters' wedding anniversary. What wins out: temptation elsewhere or treasure at hand?
