"After eight years as a gagman for Mack Sennett and Hal Roach, Garnett graduated to directing with this remarkably assured character comedy, with Robert Armstrong (King Kong) as a prizefighter who poses as a poet as a publicity ploy. As an actress hired to impersonate his high-class love interest, Lina Basquette can’t help falling for the big lug, leading to an elegantly understated climax." - MoMA.

Beware of Married Men(1928)

A press sheet printed in Exhibitors Herald and Moving Picture World in 1928 put forth the suggestion that “people in the need of a good hearty laugh should take this opportunity of getting it” by seeing a newly released comedy by Warner Bros., suggestively entitled Beware of Married Men. Since director Archie Mayo (The Petrified Forest) helmed this feature during the dying days of the silent era, the studio sought to enhance its commercial viability by embellishing the shot-silent picture with a synchronized music and effects soundtrack using the Vitaphone sound-on-disc system. Ultimately, these efforts went for naught, as the picture failed at the box office and quickly disappeared from theaters.

Directed by Archie Mayo - With Irene Rich
