A Contemporary American’s Guide to a Successful Marriage © 1959 


Written by Robert Bastron

Directed by Rob Roznowski



Set against the backdrop of the late 1950s and told in the style of the social guidance films of that era, this satirical comedy looks at the joys of marriage promised in popular culture and shatters those myths by following two young couples from courtship to marriage and the complications that come after.
