When wealthy Henry Davidson dies, he leaves all his money to his faithful butler, Sam Sutton (Summerville), and maid, Molly Hull (Pitts), who are finally able to get married. Their new lives as millionaires gets them involved with flirtatious Lola Montrose (Teasdale) and Davidson's relative Hillary Hume (Young), and complications ensue.

Sam and Molly lose everything, break up, and are finally tricked into reconciling.[4][5]



The original title of this film was They Had to Get Married. However, the Hays Office disapproved of this title, and requested the addition of the word "just".[3] They Just Had to Get Married was the third film version of Cyril Harcourt's 1914 play, A Pair of Silk Stockings. The first two were both silent films: a 1918 Lewis J. Selznick presentation also called A Pair of Silk Stockings,[6] and a 1927 Universal film, Silk Stockings.[7] These films are unrelated to the 1957 film, Silk Stockings, a musical remake of Ninotchka (1939).[3]

The film premiered in San Diego, California on December 22, 1932, and went into general American release on January 5, 1933.[8]
