Harry MacArthur Washington Star Despite a somewhat far-fetched and illogical story, despite the fact the tale creaks in a couple of its joints and becomes talky at times...The Bride Walks Out Is a more than moderately amusing screen entertainment. Jun 10, 2020 Full Review Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine Ned Sparks and Helen Broderick help to lighten it, and Robert Young as the bride's alcoholic admirer was funny once or twice. But it is far from being one of the season's brightest comedies. Aug 28, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

Tom M Terrible story. Raymond is awful. Young is good and Stanwyck is OK. Poorly written. Just hard to watch. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 07/07/20 Full Review Audience Member This newlywed marriage comedy probably wouldn't work today with its outdated chauvinist undercurrent and conclusion. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review bill t Enjoyable enough Stanwyck vehicle about a new bride (Stanwyck) and her husband (Michael Martin) weathering the storm trying to make their marriage work. The plot is rail thin, but keeps your interest. Robert Young is a dreamboat and Ned Spars is hilarious. A bit sexist, but still a fun watch nevertheless. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Hopelessly dated in terms of male/female relationships, but still a pretty cute comedy. It seems, given the social mores of the day, that Gene Raymond's cash-strapped hubby could've solved a lot of his problems by socking Robert Young in the jaw right out, but I guess he was just trying to be nice about the guy putting the moves on his wife. Even temptation of adultery is played as harmless fun here. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member comedy but not that funny. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member here we have a class clash as upper class meets working class in this drama that holds up pretty well.
