Honeymoon (1947)

Journeys in Classic Film Posted by on Apr 6, 2015

Shirley Temple’s career wasn’t purely delineated into “child” and “adult,” but the latter was subdivided into “teenager” and “young adult” which made certain movies ill-defined. Temple’s return to the screen certainly had some underra read more

Murder on a Honeymoon is a tepid outing for Edna May Oliver and James Gleason’s detecting duo. It’s the third in the series and, while Oliver and Gleason are back, it’s clear some of the magic was behind the camera. Robert Benchley and Seton I. Miller’s script is a little to read more
