They All Kissed The Bride is a 1942 romantic comedy film directed by Alexander Hall and starring Joan Crawford, Melvyn Douglas, and Roland Young. The film is an adaptation of the 1931 play The Greeks Had a Word for It by Zoë Akins. The movie begins with Margie, played by Crawford, and her two roommates, Connie and Kitty, who are all looking for wealthy husbands. They believe that they must marry up in order to escape their middle-class lives. Margie is a hard-working secretary at a talent agency, and she dreams of marrying the company's boss, Mr. MacDermott. Connie has her sights set on a rich oilman, and Kitty wants to marry a millionaire.

When Mr. MacDermott unexpectedly proposes to Margie, she hesitates at first, but eventually accepts. However, her happiness is short-lived when she realizes that she still has feelings for her old flame, Michael, played by Melvyn Douglas. Michael is a journalist who is investigating a story on Mr. MacDermott and his shady past.

To complicate matters further, Margie's boss's wife, Mrs. Kensington-Blye, played by Greer Garson, mistakenly thinks that Michael is in love with her. She becomes jealous of Margie, and this leads to a series of misunderstandings and comical situations.

As the story progresses, Margie becomes more and more torn between her love for Michael and her desire to have a wealthy lifestyle. She must ultimately make a decision about who she wants to be with and what she values most in life.

Throughout the film, the witty banter and comedic situations keep the audience entertained. Crawford's performance as Margie is charming and endearing, while Douglas is suave and debonair as her love interest. Young is hilarious as Margie's doting boss, and Garson shines in her role as the jealous wife.
