The Bride Came C.O.D.

Synopsis: Oil heiress Joan is going to elope with bandleader Allen whom she's known four days. Out-of-money pilot Steve is going to fly them to Nevada but makes a deal with her father to deliver her home unmarried. He flies off with her, an apparent kidnaping, but is forced down in the desert. The bandleader arrives with a preacher, but their marriage (in California, not Nevada) is not valid. Pilot Steve will marry her because her father is a millionaire.
Director(s): William Keighley
Production: Warner Home Video

Do you mind if I drink that champagne?

I've got to take a pill.

Have you? Do you feel poorly, Mr. Keenan?

Not yet. But I expect to in 39 minutes.

"I'm in clover, Tommy, the girl said yes

"My troubles are over

crowned with success"

I know. I know, Hit Parade, 1937.

Sorry, Brice. No offense,

but I can't get excited.

You've been engaged

to three different girls

in the last six weeks.

They were all clients of my press agents.

"There's only the future, forget the past

"When your heart sings

it's the real thing at last"

Hit Parade, 1940. You're catching up.

Nope. After a man bites a dog three times,

it's no longer news.

Unless you elope tonight. Las Vegas.

- Darling.

- But, darling, I couldn't possibly.

Take it from me, three-quarters of the fun

of getting married is getting married.

After that it's just routine.

How soon were you planning

on getting married anyway?

- Well...

- Three days. As soon as the law will allow.

- Yeah.

- Three days?

In three days

marriage may be unconstitutional.

Come on, the plane'll be on me.

Think of it, Allen, flying through the night

under the stars...

Wasn't there a lyric that went something...

Never mind. Listen.

News is scarce tonight.

You'll make the front pages

from coast to coast.

Do you think there's a chance

for a spread in the weekly magazines?

Weekly magazines, monthly magazines,

mail-order catalogs...

Darling, we'll never get married

under such favorable circumstances.

Oh, but, darling,

Father's in Chicago on business. And I...

He'll hear it on my broadcast.

Everybody listens to me.

They'll hear it in Europe, too.

Tommy's on shortwave.

- Yeah.

- Well, whatever you think best, darling.

"With you by my side, dear,

neither time nor tide..."

Hey, waiter. Bring me a telephone.
