Our Blushing Brides is a 1930 American drama film starring Joan Crawford, Robert Montgomery, Anita Page, and Dorothy Sebastian.

The film is a follow-up to Our Dancing Daughters (1928) and Our Modern Maidens (1929), which also starred Joan Crawford, Anita Page, and Dorothy Sebastian. The two previous installments in the series were both silent films, while Our Blushing Brides is a sound film which was a relatively new aspect to motion pictures. The fact that it features audible dialogue was an advertising point mentioned on the movie poster.

Our Blushing Brides was Crawford's thirty-first film (of eight-six total), but only her fourth sound film. Crawford plays Gerry, a shopgirl in love with the heir to a department store where she works. With this film, MGM began to develop a more sophisticated image of Joan Crawford, rather than continuing to promote her flapper girl persona of the silent era.[1]


Fellow department store shopgirls and roommates Gerry (Crawford), Connie (Page) and Franky (Sebastian) take different paths in the big city, but all seek to marry themselves to wealthy men. Connie has an affair with David (Raymond Hackett), son of the department store owner, and when he dumps her she kills herself. Franky marries Marty (John Miljan) without knowing he's a crook, but Gerry helps her out of this and Franky goes back to her mother's farm. Gerry has resisted Tony (Robert Montgomery), elder son of the store owner, and sadly believes that virtue will be her only reward, but things finally get better with Tony.

Throughout the story, Gerry is the sensible one, while the others throw themselves at amoral rich men in an attempt to hook one and better themselves. They end up being hurt and disappointed despite Gerry's attempts to warn them.
