Jane Russell plays a blonde movie star with a bad wig whose movie, The Kidnapped Bride, is about to open; she is kidnapped by a couple of fellows who seem too nice to be kidnappers. The entire world believes it is a publicity stunt. A bit of Stockholm Syndrome settles in as she falls in love with one of her captors. Her main complaint seems to be the ransom demanded is embarrassingly small.
