Agreeable but the print is absolutely awful.

Wendy Barrie and Roger Pryor Jane and Terry Terry loses memory after accident he tries to get his picture in the paper--maybe someone will recognize him sound not good crazy stunts to get in papers not positive he's not married

When the film begins, Terry (Roger Pryor) enters a cab and insists the driver go as fast as he can to get him to the train station. However, there is an accident and when Terry pulls himself out of the cab, his memory is gone. He knows he was on the way to the train station but cannot remember why or who he is. So, he goes to the station--but cannot remember where he was going from there. So, he just takes the next train and ends up in New York. Still not knowing who he is, he takes a job as a cabbie but soon meets a nice young lady, Jane (Wendy Barrie). Jane takes pity on 'Mr. Doe' and his plight and decides to try to help him figure out who he is.

Their journey takes them on a variety of kooky adventures--especially when they get the bright idea that if he got his face in the papers that someone would recognize him. Unforatunely, the scheme backfires repeatedly. Later, when Mr. Doe IS recognized by a business rival, the rival decides to try to derail their search and try to convince Doe that he is a criminal! What's next? See the film.

"Ticket to Paradise" is a very good film--with nice chemistry between the characters, a wonderful performance by Jane's father (Claude Gillingwater) and an interesting script. However, the DVD print from Alpha Video is just horrible. This is not unusual for the company and they release a lot of obscure and public domain films that no one else will--but they also never do restoration work on the DVDs and you have to take what you can get.
