Here Comes the Groom Comes Loads of Fun ****
22 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a wonderful Bing Crosby and Jane Wyman vehicle. No wonder the two were used again the following year in "Just for You."

Wyman needed a break after such heavy dramas as "Johnny Belinda," and "The Blue Veil." This was a perfect movie for her, playing the tired fiancée of Bing (Pete Garvey). Fed up waiting for him from returning from France as a foreign correspondent, she agrees to marry her boss, Franchot Tone, worth $40 million.

The 2 adorable children that Bing brings to America provide charm and elegance. There is always Connie Gilchrist, who brings her charm by doing what she knows best- playing a common woman full of love and joy. She is glad that the wedding is over, even though it didn't go her way, because she can now take off her corset. That was Gilchrist for you.

The big surprise of the movie is Alexis Smith, who nearly steals it. She is a riot as Tone's 4th neglected cousin. Spurred on by Crosby, to win Tone away from Wyman, she provided side-splitting hysterics in the film.

The film makes us remember that it was impossible for single people to adopt children. With the Oscar winning song, In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening, the film is an absolute hit in so many ways.
