Parlor, Bedroom and Bath is a comedy film starring Buster Keaton, released by Metro-Goldwyn Mayer in 1931. It was one of Keaton's early talking pictures, released in the aftermath of his silent career. The film was released in the United Kingdom as "Romeo in Pyjamas". It is the remake of a 1920 film of the same name, based on the play by Charles_William_Bell, a Canadian criminal lawyer and later Member_of_Parliament for Hamilton_West and Mark Swan, which opened on Broadway in New York City on Christmas Eve, 1917 and ran for 232 performances.

"Parlor, Bedroom and Bath" was filmed in Keaton's own house. According to a modern source, Eugene Pallette, who starred in the 1920 film version, was believed to have been part of the production team of this film, though he was not a member of the cast.

Plot

Reginald Denny plays the role of Jeffrey Haywood, who wants to get married to Virginia Embrey (Sally Eilers). However, Virginia refused to marry unless her older sister Angelica (Dorothy Christy) gets married first. Jeff then tries to make Angelica interested in him. Keaton plays the role of the mild-mannered Reggie Irving who passes off Jeff as a notorious playboy to arouse the interests of Angelica.
