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 an underrated comedic actress. In the 1920s and 1930s, some of her biggest hits were comedy films, including UNTAMED (her first talkie) and FORSAKING ALL OTHERS. She also went on to give a classic comedic performance in THE WOMEN as man-eater Crystal Allen, and played very well in the underrated all-star comedy hit WHEN LADIES MEET. Most of Crawford's comedies were extremely popular, which is why it's a little surprising that she is better known for her dramatic post MILDRED PIERCE work.
THEY ALL KISSED THE BRIDE is a breezy, fun movie, in which the leading stars and supporting actors all shine. The story engaging, yet light and airy. Crawford is photographed and performs beautifully, and Melvyn Douglas is at his peak as a charismatic romantic lead.
The film is not a major classic, but it's the enjoyable kind of old Hollywood fare that anyone who loves older movies can appreciate. It is an optimistic and happy movie that will appeal to people looking for a dose of positive inspiration and '40s pop culture.
