| Romance ensues after pilot kidnaps fiancée on behalf of disgruntled father.
This movie didn't win any prizes for innovative plotting, nor should it have. It's plot is the same as that of "It Happened One Night" with a few added details and variations. Eugene Palette phones in his role as the crusty but sympathetic father of the would-be bride. Despite the lack of originality in the plot, Bette Davis and James Cagney find a totally unexpected comedic chemistry in this rare teaming of Warner Brothers biggest male and female stars. This is the movie that made me a Bette Davis fan. The patter is snappy, the supporting cast is excellent (particularly Jack Carson as the narcissistic, smarmy, would-be groom), and the movie works despite the hoary plot.
