In 1925 the divorce laws took it for granted that any unmarried couple who spent the night together must be guilty of adultery. Down Maiden Blotton in the Stag and Hunt, landlady Mrs Spoker, who doesn't allow hanky panky with unmarrieds, mistakenly forces an innocent couple into just such a bed of shameful sin.
