Overview

Having starred in Our Dancing Daughters (28) and Our Modern Maidens (30), the next logical step for Joan Crawford was Our Blushing Brides (30). Crawford is featured with her Dancing Daughters costars Dorothy Sebastian and Anita Page in this tale of three roommates trying to make good in the Big City. Crawford works as a department store mannequin, while Sebastian and Page have jobs as clerks. Robert Montgomery, son of the store's owner, marries Crawford, having failed to "score" any other way; Sebastian weds a thief (John Miljan) whom she mistakes as a millionaire; and Robert Montgomery's younger brother Raymond Hackett takes Page as his mistress, which results in her suicide after he drops her. Our Blushing Brides has plenty to blush about.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
"A 1910 motor in a 1930 chassis," Joan Crawford says, summing up yet another of her roommates' wolfish gentlemen callers. That's the kind of girl Joan is in Our Blushing Brides, sensible beneath the gold-digging veneer and unlike her fellow department store colleagues too clever by half to be taken in by the likes of John Miljan or Raymond Hackett. All the studios made and remade this story scores of times and if the girls weren't named Sally, Irene and Mary (1925) they were likely to be Jerry, Connie and Franky and be played by the likes of Crawford, Anita Page and Dorothy Sebastian. Not every blushing would-be bride ended up with a rich husband, of course -- some of them, in fact, turned suicidal instead -- but they all displayed various stages of undress, especially in the good old pre-code days of 1930.
