Life's Simple Pleasures are the Best
- Tina Benez
And The Bride Wore Red is one of them ;)
Previous reviewers missed the big picture. The phrase, "Know Thy Self" is what this story presents to us viewers. Our main character, Joan Crawford, inherits -- by good fortune-- a sum of money in which she sets out on a two week Swiss Alps vacation and impersonates a wealthy, single hotel guest. Being of humble means herself, she immediately puts on false airs and brow beats any and all travelers and townspeople she encounters; including, the young and eligible village postman who has close family members employed at the exclusive Inn our main character is vacationing at.After manipulating and, quite honestly, making a fool of herself, our main character comes to realize who she is, and what simple pleasures -- an alpine cabin set before a majestic lake, a simple but honest postman who loves her -- can mean to her. Even more than belonging to a privileged and wealthy class well above her station in life.This is a kind of a tale of: "Be careful what you wish for". I enjoyed the simplicity of the message, but I cringed at watching our main character, from time to time, stumble and fall; in the end, she does what we all hopefully learn during our lifetime -- to be ourselves.
Witchy Crawford - again!
I would guess that nobody played a bitch in film as well as Joan Crawford and here she is doing it again. This film, with an actress who could actually act at the time, could have been much, much better. Crawford here is just too emotive and carries on and on until you want to strangle her. She got much better in later years but this film is just too much of her for one sitting. The pairing of the always strong-willed and acerbic Crawford as lover to Franchot Tone and Robert Young is ridiculous, as neither could keep up with her for a minute. The script swings from overly melodramatic to outright farce. Don't waste your time!
I recorded this movie on Direct TV , when I tried to view it the sound quit close to the beginning. There was a clicking sound like the tape broke. What happened? Will you show it again, I really wanted to see it.
The Bride Wore Read
Predictable, but thoroughly enjoyable. The romantic comedies of the 30s have a spirit of their own!
Boring and totally overacted by Joan Crawford IMO
The Bride Wore Red (1937)
Very routine 1930's romantic comedy, nothing very special except perhapos the presence of Joan Crawford. Decent production, good costumes and art direction.
