Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
The Secret Bride is a mediocre melodrama, the kind of "whodunit" that doesn't take a lot of thinking to figure out. It's also the kind that stretches credulity way past the breaking point and piles contrivance upon contrivance to the extent that one just wants to cry "Stop, please, stop!" The very premise -- that the district attorney would keep his marriage to the governor's daughter a secret -- is ludicrous, as the exposure of the fact that he was keeping this a secret would have been disastrous for all concerned. Proper police procedure is thrown out the window, but only so there's room to throw out even more instances of proper courtroom procedure. It just doesn't wash. This wouldn't have been such an issue if the story in question had been more exciting and engaging, but it's all routine. What keeps Bride from sinking is its stars and its directors. Warren William is adept at playing this kind of sleight-of-hand, and the delicious Barbara Stanwyck is precisely the woman to make all the hogwash worthwhile. Director William Dieterle keeps things moving at a breakneck pace, which is definitely an asset, but still manages to find time to employ some interesting angles and shots.
