Description by OLDIES.com:
Young Pinkie Wingate (Judy Garland) and her pal Buzz (Freddie Bartholomew) will do anything to stop Pinkie's widowed mother (Mary Astor) from entering into a loveless marriage with the town's fuddy-duddy banker (Gene Lockhart) -- including kidnapping! They stow mom in a travel trailer and hit the road, looking for one good man to say "I do." In the best romantic-comedy fashion, they find two: a carefree amateur photographer (Walter Pidgeon) and a wealthy businessman (Alan Hale).
Garland and Bartholomew make a winning pair as they take aim with Cupid's bow. Garland sings "On the Bumpy Road to Love," "Ten Pins in the Sky" and "Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart," a tune she reprised to the audience's cheers in her legendary 1961 concert at Carnegie Hall.
Pinky Wingate won't let her widowed mother marry just anyone. Pinky and her friend Buzz take matters into their own hands by kidnapping Dottie and taking her for what becomes a cross-country husband hunt.
A comedy about the desperate measures taken by two kids, Pinkie Wingate and Buzz Mitchell, to prevent Pinkie's widowed mother from making an undesirable match. Pinkie's pal Buzz comes up with the idea of kidnapping Mrs. Wingate, locking her in a trailer and taking her on an extended road trip in search of a mate that will meet Pinkie and her little brother's approval. Once the kids find Mr. Right though, there is the slightly trickier matter of how to get him and Mrs. Wingate to the altar.
