We’re Not Married

Non-horror portmanteau films: the jury shall forever remain out on them, as far as we’re concerned. Here bumbling Justice of the Peace Victor ‘Chimmie Fadden’ Moore performs several weddings before his licence is granted, thus necessitating five couples to be recalled some years later, each with – oh yes – a story to tell. Ginger Rogers and Fred Allen hate each other but have to be wed for their job as a detergent-hawking radio couple. Miss Mississippi Marilyn Monroe and The Mad Hatter off of Batman are married for some beauty contest ruling or other. Eve Arden and her geezer are frosty in the extreme, Mitzi Gaynor’s hubby’s in the forces, And Zsa Zsa Gabor’s after a tycoon’s oil money.
