Light meet-cute romance.
28 March 2003 | by (Culpeper, Virginia) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at Cinefst in Syracuse, New York in March 2003. Runaway bride Fay Wray convinces taxi driver Jimmy Donlin (Chester Morris) to help her hide from her rich father. What seems to be a variation of It Happened One Night turns around when we discover that Mary is not a bride after all, but a model in a wedding dress. She is innocently involved in the theft of a pearl necklace, which has become entangled in the hem of the gown. A romance with Jimmy soon develops as he harbors her from the law, and with the aid of a few pals, they try to figure out the robbery scheme.
