BEST DVD VERSION

Charley is about to marry his fiance (Katherine Grant) when a jilted suitor informs him that his bride has a wooden leg in a desperate attempt to disuade him from going through with the wedding. However, it is established that she has simply twisted her ankle and is limping.  The jealous ex is exposed and Charley gets his woman.
