A businessman's daughter runs away from an arranged marriage, only to find herself penniless and suspected of theft after she becomes the victim of a bag thief in the train.

But when his fiancée arrives unexpectedly and then his 'guest' is mistaken for her, it all gets rather embarrassing... Written by Igenlode Wordsmith

Jessie wants marriage, not a merger
23 June 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Jessie Matthews has a couple of nice songs to sing and she dances briefly, but There Goes The Bride can hardly be considered one of her better films.

Jessie is cast as a young bride who runs away on the eve of her wedding, a wedding that she's being hammerlocked into by her father because she's marrying some guy her dad does business with. More of a merger than a marriage.

She runs off to the continent, but has her bag and money stolen and worse is accused of being a thief herself. Her accuser is Owen Nares and with that old Matthews charm worms her way into his house. That part gets rather silly and unreal. Topping it all off everybody thinks she's Nares intended and Carol Goodner who is the intended isn't at all pleased with that.

It all gets sillier and sillier. I wish they had given Jessie Matthews a few more songs and dances, that might have made the film better.

David Niven is supposed to be in this film, more than likely in the party scene. Tried to spot him and thought I might have.

There Goes The Bride isn't a horrible film, but Jessie Matthews had much better to come.
