Kept Husbands is a 1931 drama directed by Lloyd Bacon. Richard Brunton (Joel McCrea) is a hard worker and honest man, knowing that he can never really aspire to great wealth. His job at a steel factory takes an unexpected turn when Richard's quick thinking and bravery turns him into a hero, saving the factory's owner, Arthur Parker (Robert McWade), from scandal and embarrassment. When Arthur invites Richard over to his sumptuous mansion as a way to show his gratitude, Richard initially hesitates. He has no real fondness for the upper class, seeing them as mostly lazy and corrupt. Not wanting to be rude or endanger his own livelihood, however, Richard eventually winds up at the beautiful Parker estate. He expects to fulfill his obligation and head home, but he definitely does not expect to catch the eye of Dotty (Dorothy Mackaill), Arthur's indolent and headstrong daughter. Wedding bells ring before long, but Richard is not about to hand his life over to the spoiled young woman. Together, they have important lessons to learn about marriage and the true value of money.moreless
