Familiar plot works fine thanks to efficient production, pleasant cast
Gene Raymond, bright and adventurous young doctor, is leaving for San Francisco pulling a camper-trailer behind his car. He stops on the way out of town to present a thank you gift to rich Hedda Hopper, who can't see him at the moment because it's her daughter's wedding day. About that same time
Would-be bride Wendy Barrie changes her mind, rips off her wedding dress, sneaks out of the house and hides out in Raymond's camper.
When Raymond discovers the stowaway, the story proper kicks into gear and they hit the road, with Barrie determined to tag along and Raymond just as determined to get rid of her. It's pretty obvious from this point where it's all headed, but it's a fun ride and the pair encounter some lively characters along the way:
Billy Gilbert has a funny bit as a diner owner who desperately wants customers to try his blue plate special. Berton Churchill and Joe Dugan are hilarious as a couple of threadbare crooks who have dastardly plans but limited brains. "We must proceed with finesse," Churchill pronounces with great seriousness, "Always remember that. Finesse. The secret of my success." He certainly doesn't look especially successful, but he does manage to make a small score off of poor Gilbert with the old "Give me two tens for a five" trick.
Raymond and Barrie are fine leads and the whole thing moves at a pretty good clip. Overall it's fun if silly.
