Not that Bad
A different take on the Run away bride - and though the bones were same - the girl makes a mistake, runs away from the groom, meets the hero on the way, who against better judgment helps her, and the end is predictably same, with father's express blessing (only a few didn't manage this last one, in fact all managed, except the very first in this series that I have seen, the Jessie Matthews take of 1932 - from which probably the Night Ride was plagiarised, at least broadly)
But in that skeleton, the flesh had been a bit different, some crime and robbery is added.
This one, as mentioned in the first review, despite a few comic characters, and their attempts, was not really a cemedy, it was much more of a Romantic Drama. To be a ComRom against RomCom - it is necessary that both the main leads should have comic flair, in this case none had, but that doesn't mean they were wooden, they were more of dramatic actors, and hence this couldn't reach the comedy level. In fact the attempts made were somewhat rankling. But even then the movie is quite watchable, despite poor print.
