Movie Info

Newlywed Carolyn Martin (Barbara Stanwyck) has been raised to expect the finer things in life, but these are things that can't be provided by her working-stiff husband Michael (Gene Raymond). Hoping to supplement the family coffers, Carolyn offers to take a job, but the chauvinistic Michael won't hear of it, insisting that the couple live on his measly 35 dollars per week, causing no end of trouble when wifey overextends her bank account. When millionaire Hugh McKenzie (Robert Young) enters her life, Carolyn is sorely tempted to walk out on her husband -- and, as indicated by the film's title, she does. Ultimately, however, money flies out the door when love flies back in the window. Counterpointing the marital travails of our hero and heroine is the contentious union between Mattie and Paul Dodson (Helen Broderick and Ned Sparks), who've learned to be happy while miserable. Black comic actor Willie Best is prominently billed in The Bride Walks Out, but his role was cut down to a mere walk-on.more

Audience Reviews for The Bride Walks Out

here we have a class clash as upper class meets working class in this drama that holds up pretty well.

Although this is a minor film, it does have Barbara Stanwyck, who always enhances a film. Helen Broderick and Ned Sparks offer good support. Not a great classic, but short and very enjoyable. I have never been a fan of Gene Raymond, I feel he pulls the film down with a performance that doesn?t seem sincere. Directed by Leigh Jason.
