Barry K. Barnes,
Missing believed lost, this is a frivolous but not a very good movie. The fact that it has been discovered means at least you get to see an early role from Jean Simmons.
Factory girl Joan Dodd (Patricia Medina) attracts the attention of a wealthy older man Adolphus Pickering (Claud Allister,) her mother encourages this relationship as it means climbing the social ladder and they soon prepare to marry.
However on the day of her wedding Joan's boyfriend Jack Fowler (Jimmy Hanley) returns from the army on leave and both of them run away to eccentric relatives in the country with Joan wearing her bridal gown. The relatives think that Joan and Jack have just married.
The film is rather ridiculous and dull at times.
