In Quarantine
Romantic, Pepful, Humorous, Amusing,
Highly Entertaining
It happened this way.' He was handsome and didn't like her. She was a go
getter and liked him. So when he thought he was eloping with another girl
he found himself on shipboard alone with HER! Then complications,
and the epidemic of fun spreads like wildfire. Harrison Ford is the explorer
who elopes with the wrong girl and gets himself into many amusing situa
tions. The fun starts with these two popular players and gathers speed and
laughs with the addition of well known stars in Broadway's leading com
edies of the season just closed. In "Lovers in Quarantine," Bebe Daniels con
vincingly bridges the gap between the ungainly, ludicrous child with a secret
admiration for her elder sister's beau, to the poised, gorgeously gowned wo
man who captivates that young man almost in spite of himself.
