Storyline

Alice Bond is under a lot of pressure from her parents to marry Marshall Winkler, an arrogant blowhard whose only positive quality is his money. Alice really cares for Michael Stevens, an incredibly charming but utterly unambitious ne'er-do-well. Even Alice realizes that there's no future for a man who is content to sponge off his wealthy uncle instead of working. Michael convinces Alice's parents to let him marry her if he can get the job he intends to pursue. The catch is that the job is that of mayor, and to get it, he must run against the formidable political machine of the incumbent Mayor Loomis. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

another shortie from N Smith and George Reeves
5 January 2014 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

Always a Bride is another Warner Brothers shortie from director Noel Smith and George Reeves! A lover's triangle where Alice (Rosemary Lane) is being courted by two gentlemen callers. Marshall ( John Eldredge) manages to get a ring on her finger JUST before his counterpart Mike (George Reeves... yes, that's television's Adventures of Superman). The film is a series of confrontations between the three of them; one scene is a private discussion between the two men, then another at a dance where EVERYONE chimes in. This doesn't have the fun, happy, upbeat undercurrent that we felt in Smith's Father is a Prince. There is more arguing and yelling in this one, but it's entertaining enough. Over the course of an hour, Alice finds out what the guys are really like, and must make her decision. Each one has their pros and cons. Like Mike (and my grandmother) said, "here's mud in your eye!"
