Storyline

Laurel Srevens (Jane Russell) is a movie star who's kidnapped by a pair of desperate amateurs - Mike Valla (Ralph Meeker) and "Dandy" (Keenan Wynn). But the pair get cold feet, and decide to let her go. Worried abut the effect a faked kidnapping would have on her career, Laurel tells them they've got to go through with it. She points out she'd been party to a number of outrageous publicity stunts during her career, and since they abducted her on the eve of the release of her newest film, "The Kidnapped Bride," she fears her career will collapse, unless they make the kidnapping appear real.

Uninspired romantic comedy is a dud of the first order...
29 July 2007 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

JANE RUSSELL, wearing the worst looking blonde wig since Barbara Stanwyck went blonde for "Double Indemnity", does nothing to enhance the reputation she had after "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", wherein she sometimes stole scenes from Marilyn Monroe and Charles Coburn. Here she plays a ditsy actress supposedly a blonde bombshell whose latest film is about a kidnapped bride.

Here she's not exactly a scene-stealer--in fact, her performance is rather strained and only improves after she takes off that horrendous wig. Then, it improves considerably.

No help is the script, a tiresome thing that is silly from the start and wastes some talented people--like ADOLPHE MENJOU, RALPH MEEKER and KEENAN WYNN. Meeker seems so uninterested in his role that it shows. Badly.

Meeker and Wynn are partners in a kidnapping scheme that fails to go smoothly because Russell is a regular spitfire who proves hard to handle, until she decides the kidnapping would be good publicity for her latest film. The script only gets worse as it goes along, with only FRED CLARK able to put some laughs into a brief supporting role.

Summing up: A really clumsy script, it does nothing for the careers of Russell, Meeker or Wynn who have all done better elsewhere.
