sort of a screwball comedy
15 September 2015 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

George Brent and his future wife Ann Sheridan star in "Honeymoon for Three," a 1941 film, featuring Osa Massen, Charles Ruggles, Jane Wyman, and William T. Orr (who became a very big producer for Warner Bros.).

Brent is Kenneth Bixby, a best-selling author of a new book, Miriam, who is traveling with his secretary Anne Rogers (Ann Sheridan), whom he wants to marry, on a book tour. While in Cleveland, he is accosted by his college sweetheart Julie (Massen), who wants him back and believes she is the Miriam of his book. She is currently married to Harvey Wilson (Ruggles).

An attorney, Arthur, and his fiancée Elizabeth, don't want a scandal in the Wilson family and want Bixby and Julie kept apart. Wilson, meanwhile, has been hearing about Bixby for years and wants to see him, so he shows up at Bixby's suite. Anne is furious, Julie wants a divorce, and Wilson wants Bixby to marry Julie so that he can be rid of her.

Mildly funny comedy and a routine one. Everyone is commenting on George Brent's comedy expertise. I actually didn't get that. He held his own, certainly, but this was more of a Cary Grant role. I frankly think Errol Flynn, though he wasn't known for it, was better at comedy than Brent. Also, it stretched credibility that Brent was in college ten years earlier with Massen.

Ann Sheridan is in her milieu here and adds a lot of spark to the film. She also looks wonderful and does a great rumba. Jane Wyman, alas, has a very small role.

There is a scene where Brent is having dinner with Massen on one side of the restaurant and Sheridan, Ruggles, Westlake, and Wyman on the other side, with the same waiter for both tables, who believes he is going crazy. That scene is good but could have been much better.

Pleasant.
