Critic Reviews for The Bride Wore Red

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

The director Dorothy Arzner infuses this glossy romantic comedy, from 1937, set in the pleasure domes of Europe, with acrid insight and theatrical flair.

[Joan Crawford's] problem is always the same - she has to get herself married to one of two dazzling screen heroes.

October 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Though not one of her strongest features, it's still worth seeing this melodrama, made by Dorothy Arzner, the only woman director in the studio system, and starring Joan Crawford in one of her typical parts.

January 9, 2011 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Its plot features the stale idea of a woman on the bottom rung trying to climb the social ladder.
