Romance on the Run was quite an enjoyable B-comedy
This was a movie directed by former Our Gang helmer Gus Meins that I managed to find on Internet Archive. Like his previous movie-The Hit Parade-that I found on YouTube, this one also has William Demarest and Edward Brophy, two character actors who provide some comical relief. Donald Woods is the leading man, Patricia Ellis the leading lady, and Grace Bradley is one of the villains. Now that I think of it, everyone has moments of some comedy that I found chuckle-worthy, to say the least. Some of the reviewers here complained that some scenes were abrupt. I have to admit part of me felt that way too. They also mentioned they saw the 53-minute version. I did too. So, yes, I wonder what was in the 16-minutes that are now missing. Still, Romance on the Run was quite an enjoyable comedy for the length I saw it as.
