Directed by Will Jason



Print: black/white

Runtime: 64 min.

Genre: musical

Print quality: A



Radio singing star, Eve Porter, wants a vacation during her show's summer hiatus, but her

manager and press have booked her for additional work. She refuses and goes to Las

Vegas. When she finds them there hunting her down, she manages to escape them by

hiding in the car of a newspaper reporter. She comes out of hiding while he is driving, but

everything she says is misconstrued, making him believe that she is a recently-escaped

convict, "The Singing Widow". He plans to use this as a story to get back into the good

graces of his editor. Through some comic mishaps, he learns who she really is. He then

decides to take her back to Hollywood to collect the reward for her return. But now love has

entered the mix, and must be resolved with his job and her engagement to another.


 


YOU CAN'T RUN AWAY FROM IT


Starring June Allyson, Jack Lemmon, Charles Bickford, Paul Gilbert, Jim Backus

Directed by Dick Powell



Print: color

Runtime: 95 min.

Genre: musical

Print quality: A



You Can't Run Away From It is a musical remake of Frank Capra's Oscar-winning classic It

Happened One Night complete with same-named characters and word-for-word scene reconstructions. It all begins when

spoiled heiress Ellie Andrews (June Allyson) is literally kidnapped from the altar by her

wealthy father (Charles Bickford). Escaping from her daddy's yacht with only a handful of

clothes and minimal finances, Ellie hops a bus, intending to travel cross-country to be

reunited with her fortune-hunting husband. Reporter Peter Warne (Jack Lemmon), sensing

a swell newspaper story, tags along. Though Peter and Ellie aren't terribly fond of one

another (that's putting it mildly!), by the end of their journey they've fallen in love — but there

are still several last-minute complications before a happy ending can be reached. Most of

the musical numbers in the remake are awkwardly inserted during the more famous

scenes from the Capra original: the "Walls of Jericho," the impromptu singalong on the bus,

the hitchhiking bit, etc. Benefiting from the breezy performances of Jack Lemmon and June

Allyson, You Can't Run Away From It is easy to take, but hardly within shouting distance of

the original film's brilliance.
