Cross-Country Romance (1940) Frank Woodruff, Gene Raymond, Wendy Barrie, Hedda Hopper, Comedy, Romance
Clad only in a slip, Diane hops into a travel trailer parked outside her mother’s New York apartment, which is then driven off by Dr. Larry Smith (Raymond). Larry is heading cross-country to San Francisco, as he plans to board a ship for China where he will work with a famous doctor on a cure for leukemia.
Needless to say, Larry’s a bit surprised to find a stowaway in his trailer, and when he refuses to believe his unexpected guest is the famous Diane North, Diane gives up and tells Larry her name is Maggie Jones. No one will be surprised that as Larry and Diane/Maggie travel across the United States, they fall in love.
