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.
31 March 2003 | by (Culpeper, VA) – See all my reviews

I feel so luck to have caught this rare film at CINEFEST the annual early & rare film festival in Syracuse, NY - March 2003. More film buffs should support these festivals and share their discoveries on the IMDB so other film fans can track these old titles down. THEY MET IN A TAXI (1935 Columbia, D: Alfred Green) 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.
