The Bride Came C.O.D. (1941)

Two big stars, a fine supporting cast, and plenty of snappy dialogue make this film a real treat for fans of screwball comedy. James Cagney plays Steve Collins, a wiseacre pilot who thinks he knows all the angles but he gets more than he bargained for when he "kidnaps" 23-year-old Texas oil heiress Joan Winfield (played by Bette Davis) at the request of her father, who wants to divert her from an ill-advised elopement with an obnoxious bandleader (Jack Carson).
