The Bride Wore Red stars Joan Crawford, Franchot Tone, and Robert Young in this drab 1937 film. The film is about a poor singer Anni(Crawford), who is thrown away from her dreary and depressing life into a life filled with riches and adventures. Along the adventure, she meets two men- one being the postman Giulio(Tone) and the other being a rich and charming man named Rudi(Young). The film dragged so much, it was really hard to sit there and watch it. It felt awkward watching Tone as the postman. It just didn't feel right with him or Young in the movie. That's not a movie either of them were good at. Crawford... was well Crawford. Now don't get the idea, that I hate Crawford because I don't but when it hit the mid to the late 1930's, Joan changed completely. She wasn't the same adorable and sweet natured Joan, that we were use to seeing in her early films. From mid to late 1930's, Joan was in a lot of awful movies such as this one and The Ice Follies of 1939. It's like when you watch these movies, it's hard to imagine the old Joan Crawford. Her style and persona changed drastically from those times and that's why I have a love/hate relationship with her. For the movie, I'd skip it if I were you.
