      Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine The elements are all familiar, not to say hokum, but the charm of Love on the Run is the speed and ingenuity with which they have been fitted into a brand-new pattern. Sep 25, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Though the plot line is thin, the presence of Crawford and Gable make it watchable.

      Steve D It really wants to be It Happened One Night. It isn't, but that does not mean it isn't fun. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/13/23 Full Review michele a Joan young and married to Tone then. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review kevin w Simply a perfect example of old Hollywood think, here is a baldfaced copy of "It Happened One Night" (only 2 years before!) with the volume turned up to eleven. And so there is the rich girl on the run, check, the reporter on-the-sly following her, check, madcap adventures on the road, check, PLUS competition with a best buddy/fellow reporter, lowdown, dirty spies, the threat of international intrigue, a mysterious map, oy vey! Add a slapdash pace, a plane ride, a train ride, a truck ride, a car ride, and a night at the Palace of Versailles AND dancing ghosts! Whew! Have they rolled the credits yet? Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Very funny romantic comedy with Clark Gable, Joan Crawford, and Franchot Tone all on top form as the story gets steadily more and more crazy. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Fun Gable movie. Crawford is mis-cast. Am becoming a big Franchot Tone fan. The castle caretaker is lotta fun. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review ashley h Love on the Run is an incredible film. It is about a runaway bride and an undercover reporter get caught up in political intrigue. Joan Crawford and Clark Gable give fantastic performances. The screenplay is good but a little slow in places. W.S. Van Dyke did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the humor and romance. Love on the Run is a must see. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
