An unspecified, but evidently revised draft of this unattributed screenplay. The film is a bit of mystery, and may not have been produced. There are press announcements of its having begun production, and then the MPPDA Digital Archive indexes correspondence from Will Hays, ca. June 1930, to Albert, Harry and Jack Warner, taking issue with the marketing in VARIETY of what is promoted as their "Sex-Appeal Sextette," of which this title was #3, coupled with the likes of DIVORCE AMONG FRIENDS, EX MISTRESS, THE MATRIMONIAL BED, A SOLDIER'S PLAYTHING, and THE OFFICE WIFE. The tagline for this film was "A Modern Casanova who Believed One Wife was a Good Reason for Ten Sweethearts." Several of the other films in the series were completed (even if now "lost'), but this property seems to have disappeared without a trace. The authorship of the copy of the script in the Warner Bros. Script Archive at Princeton is not attributed.
