4.0 out of 5 stars More Jessie Matthews on DVD please!
How nice to have THERE GOES THE BRIDE on DVD. It's my first chance to see it and it is charming and quite well-paced and Jessie shows more of her comedic gifts than in several other films. (Others that I have seen but would love to own - HEAD OVER HEALS, IT'S LOVE AGAIN and the fine GANGWAY - should all be given the DVD treatment. Why not?) The technical aspects of this...

A little bit 'long winded' for a story and not much 'action' but a gem if you like Jessie Matthews. She's the proverbial pest who attaches herself to the hero and consequently drives him crazy, breaks up his engagement and gets him for herself at the end.

How nice to have THERE GOES THE BRIDE on DVD. It's my first chance to see it and it is charming and quite well-paced and Jessie shows more of her comedic gifts than in several other films. (Others that I have seen but would love to own - HEAD OVER HEALS, IT'S LOVE AGAIN and the fine GANGWAY - should all be given the DVD treatment. Why not?) The technical aspects of this film are not perfect. The transfer is a bit muddy and dim at times - this IS simply a transfer though - not a restoration - and we are all lucky to be able to see the film at all. There are far worse transfers of Jessie Matthews material - especially the 2-CD JESSIE MATTHEWS: A CENTENARY CELEBRATION (an abysmal collection of music that, in my opinion, is so poorly transferred that it should be avoided AT ALL COSTS!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Jessie Matthews Classic, 19 July 2009

This review is from: There Goes The Bride [DVD] [1932] (DVD)
This is the story of a young French girl (Matthews) who is being forced into a marriage by her father as part of a business deal. Before the wedding she jumps on a train for Paris and meets up with the lead Owen Nares who plays a playboy also engaged to be married. Although Nares was rather old for the part, the two leads are excellent together with many funny moments. Jessie was 25 when she made this picture but looks in her late teens. She is excellent throughout. Her comic timing is perfect and her singing and dancing as always first rate. Like a number of films before the war, the dialogue is 'suggestive' at times (without being crude)which is refreshing. The cast carry this enjoyable romp off well. I bought this because I only had a home made DVD of it and the soundtrack is much better than my original, although the picture quality is dark in some places. Still it is over 75 years old and remains one of my favourites. There are bonus pictures on the disc too. I hope Granada are planning to issue all of Miss Matthews' films on DVD. I would be happy to have them in 'official' releases like this. If you haven't discovered the lovely Jessie Matthews yet, here is your chance. Highly recommended.

Totally far fetched plot but who cares. Suspend belief and enjoy this amusing and warm film. Seeing the beautiful Jessie Matthews is reason enough to buy it. Her facial expressions are a delight. A film with no swearing, no violence and a good supporting cast.
