The story is supposedly taking place in New York City, but during the automobile chase near the end of the film the principals in their Mercedes drive up Grand Avenue in Los Angeles, passing the Mayflower Hotel and in and out of the Grand Central Garage. In another scene they pop into a hotel lobby with Hotel Stowell, located on South Spring Street, in Los Angeles, in the background. See more »
Easy to see why Lombard was the highest paid actress in Hollywood at one time. Breathtakingly beautiful and with a wonderful sense of humor. That said, The Gay Bride is a fun movie but very much on the modest side. An amusing trifle about a heartless, gold-digging chorus girl bent on marrying one gangster after another, only to see them wiped out before she can get her hands on the cash. Chester Morris, a gangster's book-keeper, the one true love interest - whom of course she despises because he has no money. Amusing sparks struck between the two that provides the main thrust of the comedy. The great Zasu Pitts in a wisecracking supporting role. Not a great movie but a few good laughs - and a chance to see Lombard at her most luminous. Worth the time.
