The Groom Wore Spurs Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Since someone had already used the title [[Feature~V85965~The Bride Wore Boots~thebrideworeboots]], it follows that there'd eventually be a film called The Groom Wore Spurs. [[Performer~P11363~Jack Carson~jackcarson]] stars as movie cowboy hero Ben Castle, who in "real life" is exactly the opposite of his screen image. When Castle gets into a scrape in Las Vegas, he is bailed out by lady lawyer Abigail Furnival ([[Performer~P61099~Ginger Rogers~gingerrogers]]). Despite Castle's many faults, Abigail can't help falling in love with the big lug. Once they've entered into a marriage of convenience (a plot device better seen than described), Abigail sets about to force Castle to truly become the virtuous, hard-riding, sweet-singing character he plays on screen. The film is bogged down with an unnecessary murder-mystery subplot, which is happily disposed of during a climactic slapstick chase. The Groom Wore Spurs was produced independently by Fidelity Pictures and released by Universal. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
