Another galloping lithograph of the boy-and-girl-always-fighting woodblock [from a story by Elizabeth Sanxay Holding]. It Happened One Night (1934) is the spiritual pappy of this type of entertainment.

Preaching the philosophy that a good fight (between the sexes) never hurt anybody and that a strong masculine ego is the proper consort for a snippy female ditto, The Bride Comes Home runs Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray over a not-too-serious steeplechase of minor frictions and clashes. To supply the missing apex of the triangle is Robert Young, a frankly unaggressive but beaming son of $3 million. He is almost too charming for the best interests of the story.

It’s a made-to-measure framework for Colbert, presenting her in the always-attractive position of a young lady beset by two lovers, both fascinating and both collapsible at her slightest whim. Several bit parts are played for maximum values. Notably Edgar Kennedy and William Collier Sr.
