Based on a clever stage farce whose adaptation to the screen was mishandled, both in terms of direction and technical assets, VIRTUOUS HUSBAND features Nugent as a young man who is about to marry Arthur, but who puts a considerable strain on their relationship when he insists on committing

himself to the instructions left by his dead mother as to how he should lead his life. Arthur doesn't exactly see things in the same light and quickly lets this be known. Paramount lent Arthur to Universal for this one, Compson appeared courtesy of Radio, and Anthony Brown helped Moore take them

through their paces as the dialog director.
