Storyline

Actor Ben Castle is a phony singing cowboy who can not ride, sing, or act, and is afraid of guns and horses and the first one out the door when trouble breaks out. His studio hires attorney Abigail Furnival, to get him out of trouble with a big-time gambler because he can not pay off a gambling debt. And the next thing she knows is that she has married him. The gambler decides to write off the debt when he learns that Abigail is the daughter of an old friend. But the gambler is murdered, and Ben appears to be involved.

The Bride Wore Heels
1 May 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Beautiful blonde lawyer Ginger Rogers (as Abigail "AJ" Furnival) arrives to help chubby cowboy star Jack Carson (as Ben Castle) get rid of a Las Vegas gambling debt. Obviously a fan of her client, Ms. Rogers falls in love at first sight, despite Mr. Carson admittedly being "a little slow on the draw." In fact, Carson hates horses...

This slow-moving star vehicle didn't advance or sustain anyone's career. Rogers and Carson are appealing but unlikely lovers. More sparks are generated between Rogers and Carson's handsome pilot James Brown (as Steve Hall). But "The Groom Wore Spurs" has moments, especially when hilarious maid Mira McKinney (as Mrs. Forbes) makes the scene. The nicely assembled cast includes future producer Ross Hunter (as Austin Tindale), a bank clerk being seduced by Joan Davis (as Alice Dean), and director Richard Whorf.

***** The Groom Wore Spurs (3/14/51) Richard Whorf ~ Ginger Rogers, Jack Carson, Joan Davis, Mira McKinney
