Gene Raymond as Lawrence Smith (The Bride Walks Out, Smartest Girl in Town, also married to Jeannette MacDonald in real life) made a whole bunch of these love story mixup capers in the 30's & 40's. Wendy Barrie ( from the Falcon movies, a couple of war movies, even made "Love on a Bet" with our Gene Raymond in 36) plays Diane North, and isn't sure if she wants to get married, and the chase is on. Hedda Hopper (The Women, Sunset Boulevard) is Mrs. North, the mother of the bride, and is offering a reward for the safe return of her daughter when Diane goes missing. Astute viewers will also see Alan Ladd (made war movies, westerns, noirs) and Bill Gilbert, who made a living stuttering, muttering, and sneezing in a whole lot of movies. This movie is surprisingly tight and clever, in spite of the number of writers listed. Lots of light fun.
