Summarize this article for a 10 years old


A Bride for Henry is a 1937 American romantic drama film directed by William Nigh based on the Josephine Bentham short story of the same name that was published in Liberty Magazine. Authors such as James Cox and Kylo-Patrick Hart have cited A Bride for Henry as within a subgenre of screwball comedies termed "sentimental comedy", where plots deal with domestic struggles but avoid true threats of adultery and ultimately defend marriage. The formation of the Production Code Administration (PCA) hastened the production of sentimental comedies; others include Maybe It's Love (1935), Three Married Men (1936), and Wife, Doctor, and Nurse (1937).[1]
