Pamela Dickson (Sally Ann Howes) is about to get married to her fiancé Joe Trent (Nigel Buchanan), when her long-lost father (Guy Rolfe) arrives. Ostensibly a cad, he turns out to be just the opposite, so she immediately puts her own plans on hold to arrange a reconciliation between her father and mother (Nora Swinburne) before marrying her beloved Joe.


Critical reception

TV Guide called it "A redundant film which only fools would rush in to see";[2] while Allmovie noted, "Fools Rush In is as light as a feather, but it pleases the crowd."[3]
