Unmarried is a 1939 American film starring Helen Twelvetrees, Buck Jones, and Donald O'Connor.


Nightclub hostess Pat Rogers and boyfriend Slag Bailey, a boxer, aren't sure what to do after their associate Pins Streaver tries to rob a safe and dies in the act.

They travel together to Pins's home in the country, where 12-year-old Ted Streaver returns from school, unaware his dad is dead. Intending to stay a short while, Pat and Slag pretend to be a married couple and become the boy's foster parents.

Ted grows up to become a football hero in school, but trouble arises when Cash Enright, an unscrupulous boxing promoter, shows up and tries to persuade Ted to step into the ring. Slag ends up socked on the jaw by the kid, but ultimately succeeds in convincing him not to fight.
