Love on the Run ★★½ 1936

Enjoyable romantic comedy starring Crawford as a rich American heiress and Gable and Tone (Crawford's real husband at the time) as journalists stationed in Europe. Gable and Tone are assigned to cover an international aviator, who turns out to be an evil spy, as well as the upcoming wedding of flighty Crawford. When Crawford asks for help in getting out of her marriage, Gable and Tone steal a plane and the trio is chased across Europe by spies. Wild and farfetched plot, but the stars make it worthwhile. Based on the story “Beauty and the Beast” by Alan Green and Julian Brodie. 80m/B VHS . Joan Crawford, Clark Gable, Franchot Tone, Reginald Owen, Mona Maris, Ivan Lebedeff, Charles (Judel, Judells) Judels, William Demarest; D: Woodbridge S. Van Dyke; W: John Lee Mahin, Manuel Seff, Gladys Hurlbut.
