The Crazy Millionaire, the Carroway Seed, and the Carnival Girl

Loretta Young’s older sister, Polly Ann Young, is Helen Newton, and it is her wedding day. As the movie begins, the room is full of guests, the processional music begins, the groom and his best man enter and stand near the minister, and several beautiful bridesmaids begin walking down the aisle, followed by the bride and her father, arm in arm.

As the bride and her court are nearing the groom and minister, suddenly the groom turns and runs from the room. Quiet chaos begins to build in the audience, when suddenly the bridesmaids turn and rush to the back of the room, pushing the bride and her father back with them.

This is not like any wedding that I have seen, or been in, but here it is, that scene that is often joked about and worried about, but rarely experienced. The groom has decided at the last possible moment that he cannot marry the girl who is walking down the aisle.

This leads to that, and his insulted bride convinces everyone that the groom is insane, and he is put in an asylum for ‘the rest of his life.’

You think that you’ve seen the wackiest wedding ever? You ain’t seen nothing yet! Now the madness (pardon the insane pun) is about to begin, so keep your fingers crossed as legendary actor Adolphe Menjou and famous actress Carole Landis team up with our fleeing groom and travel the countryside with a carnival that is a bit crazier than all of them put together. This will be one wild road show. Pop a big bowl of popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
