Based on a play by Lolita Ann Westman and H.H. Van Loan, The Runaway Bride casts Mary Astor in the title role. Newly wed to Blaine (Lloyd Hughes), Mary (Astor) is all set to enjoy her honeymoon in Atlantic City. But the consummation of her marriage will have to wait, thanks to a jewel robbery, a pickpocket chambermaid (Natalie Moorehead), and an enforced stay at a shady hospital run by gangsters. Throughout it all, our heroine wears a resigned expression on her face -- and who could blame her? Runaway Bride was directed by actor Donald Crisp, who should have stuck to the business-end of the camera.
