Laurel Srevens (Jane Russell), a movie star is kidnapped by a pair of amateurs, Mike Valla (Ralph Meeker) and "Dandy" (Keenan Wynn). But their hearts aren't really into their work and they decide to let her go. Laurel, worried abut the effect a phoney kidnapping will have on her career, tells them they've got to go through with it for real. She points out that in the past, she's been a party to number of outrageous publicity stunts and, because they abducted her on the eve of the release of her new film, "The Kidnapped Bride," she tells them her career will collapse unless they make the kidnapping look like it was on the level.

A popular movie star is kidnapped,and everyone thinks,it's a publicity gag for her new picture "The Kidnapped Bride" - it isn't,but nobody cares,because everybody thinks it is! The diva falls in love with one of her kidnappers - that was clear from the beginning,of course,but that doesn't matter. A nice idea,transpositioned in a delightful,amusing comedy full of funny and also sarcastic gags and dialogues,with terrific actors(Jane Russell - who wears a blonde wig in the first part - is nearly as good as in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes",if not better)and a good story...it is a pity that this movie is almost forgotten today!I wouldn't say it's a masterpiece-but I liked it very much!
