Margaret Drew runs her trucking company single-mindedly, if not ruthlessly. The only thorn in her side is writer Michael Holmes who is writing a book on some of her tough ways. With no time for men, the effect an attractive stranger has on her at her sister's wedding is unnerving. When it turns out this is the hated writer, she starts seriously to lose her bearings. Surely it can't become Maggie and Mike? Written by

Joan Crawford was asked to take over Carole Lombard's role after she died in a air crash during a war bond tour. She then donated all of her salary to the Red Cross who found Lombard's body, and promptly fired her agent for taking his usual 10%. See more »
Joan Crawford and Melvyn Douglas star in "They All Kissed the Bride," a 1942 battle of the sexes film also starring Allen Jenkins, Helen Parrish, Billie Burke, and Roland Young. Crawford plays a ruthless business woman, M.J. Drew, after the scalp of a critical reporter, Mike Holmes (Douglas) who is getting inside information from one of her employees. Unfortunately for M.J., when the two meet, it's instant chemistry, though each one doesn't know who the other is.
This is a light, entertaining movie with some great moments (particularly the jitterbug competition). It's particularly interesting to see the message hammered home in so many of these films: M.J. is a tough business woman because she's "frustrated" and has "never been a woman." Crawford does an excellent job in something a little different for her. She's not an actress with a light touch, but it works well here. She plays her part very seriously, and because it's an amusing script and well-directed, she comes off as quite funny. Her clothes are amazing, and she looks fabulous. Melvyn Douglas - how many of these breezy comedies did he just sail through before anyone realized what a profound, magnificent actor he was? He didn't get the opportunity to show his stuff until old age - and then, watch out.
Very entertaining. Predictable, but fun.
