Gay Bride, The (1934)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A gold-digging chorus girl (Carole Lombard) decides to the only way to get rich is by marrying gangsters and hoping that they get killed so that all their money will go to her. She finds one dimwitted gangster (Nat Pendleton) to marry her but his bodyguard (Chester Morris) can see right through her. This comedy has some truly great moments in it but overall there aren't enough constant laughs to make it a complete winner. I was surprised to learn that this was the only film Lombard made for MGM but she turns in a fine performance. Her role isn't the greatest but the screenplay does offer her plenty of nice one-liners and for the most part she hits everyone of them. Pendleton is also very good as the dumb gangster who can't see that his wife is just after his money. It's Morris who steals the show however with his perfect comic timing. The screenplay does his character more justice than anyone else and Morris uses it to his advantage with countless great lines and some truly hysterical moments including a scene at a will reading. Zasu Pitts is wasted in her small role of Lombard's friend. The screenplay doesn't have enough laughs to carry the 80-minute running time but if you're a fan of the two stars then the film should keep you entertained.
