While it would never be called the best comedy ever made, "Love on the Run", is a fast paced, comic escapade that provides a refreshing light hearted role for MGM drama queen Joan Crawford just as she was beginning to move out of her "shopgirl", phase into more meaty dramtic roles. The theme of a flighty heiress running away from a stuffy fiancee and falling for the lovable heel who just might or might not be taking her for a ride is one often used in the 1930's screwball comedies. The most notable example of course is Frank Capra's "It Happened One Night", however here the idea, as silly as it may appear at times, gets the full MGM treatment as a star vehicle for the legendary acting team of Joan Crawford and Clark Gable. In the seventh of their eight teamings as a screen couple the pair go all out for laughs in the fast paced "Love on the Run", which is very typical of many of the screwball comedies of this era. Joan Crawford in particular takes on a very different type of character here and she seems to enjoy the madcap proceedings as the film taking its cue from the title, literally turns into one unending chase sequence with love predictably blossoming along the way.

Based on a lightweight story by Alan Green and Julian Brodie, "Love on the Run", finds two "friends", and rival newspaper correspondants Mike Anthony(Clark Gable), and Barney Pells (Franchot Tone), covering two concurrent events in Europe; the society wedding of flighty heiress Sally Parker (Joan Crawford), to shady Prince Igor (Ivan Lebedeff),and the stratosphere flight of Baron and Baroness Spandermann (Reginald Owen and Mona Barrie), who in actual fact are spies using the flight to smuggle out valauble defense documents.

"Love on the Run" really says it all. The entire movie is based on a guise of suspicion and staying ahead of the others, and if anyone knows, it's Joan, how to stay ahead of everyone else. "I'm a rather unorthodox American as you notice," Joan's character Sally says in the picture. And that's really true.

On her wedding day Sally jilts her bridegroom, fleeing out of a window. But don't feel too much pity for her groom, you see he was just a fortune-seeker, going after socialite Sally Parker for her money and her social status.

Sally has to contend with 2 newspaper boys who're following her every move (Clark Gable plays Mike Anthony and Joan's real-life hubby Franchot Tone plays Barney Pells.) Along their journey (through 2 continents and multiple cities) they steal a plane and have to fight the rascally Baron and Baroness.

But even after Sally finds out that Mike is a reporter after a hot story she still loves him, saying to him, "oh darling don't think, just hold me nice and close." Joan was amazing as the perpetual victim who becomes the victor. Everyone is after her and everyone wants a piece of her but no one wants anything tangible from her, until she meets and realizes a connection with Mike.

Clark Gable played his part astutely as he always does because it was more like watching a documentary of some sorts than a film because he was so real and believable as he delivered his lines. Francot Tone is a very underrated movie actor of the '30s. Perhaps overshadowed by his wife's own successes. But he was always funny and there was somewhat of an innocence to him that almost always went unnoticed.

The film includes many fun and funny scenes and dialog that is always subtle and not at all in-your-face.

A slightly daffy cinematic item of little importance, LOVE ON THE RUN has clever direction, sophisticated dialogue, novel settings and ludicrous situations. The movie is screen entertainment which is easy to take; just relax and have a good time with it! The plot is a bit improbable, but this is another fast, suave, sophisticated comedy about and heiress and a star reporter. Joan Crawford is amusing as spoiled Sally Parker while Gable does well in his role of Michael Anthony. This is an enjoyable romantic comedy which stars Joan as a rich American heiress and Gable and Tone (Crawford's real-life 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...A wild and farfetched plot is helped greatly by the star performances; you can see how hard everyone is working to make this a slick, sexy hit.

Joan Crawford and producer Joseph Mankiewicz snapped out of the solemnity of the movie "Gorgeous Hussey" for this movie where she is back in the arms of Clark Gable again. Mike Anthony (Gable) and Barny Pells (Franchot Tone) are both friends and fellow press reporters who are in love with the same woman, Sally Parker (Crawford). Both are on her heels in one long chase where Mike, as expected wins over Sally. There is considerable action and popular gagging, but overall entertaining. Gable, as usual outwitting the slower-moving competitor, promises to fill the void in the life of the abused heiress, Sally Parker. She has just deserted a fortune-seeker at the altar, and the two newspapermen see the opportunities in making a series of reports exposing the rich lady's reactions to real romance. Reginald Owen is ingratiating as the suave spy chief and his wife Mona Barrie makes a nice assistant. Donald Meek strains hard to make a nitwit caretaker part humorous.

This is a romantic comedy and W.S. Van Dyke has directed the movie with true professionalism. Reginald Owen and Mona Barrie in the supporting roles helped the lead characters make this movie a box office success. Joan Crawford went on to make eight movies for Mankiewicz that included; The Bride Wore Red; the Gorgeous Hussy; Mannequin; Reunion in France; the Shining Hour; Strange Cargo and Love on the Run.
