Edmund Lowe plays an insurance investigator who interrupts his honeymoon to look into the case of a murder, which could also be a suicide, in which case his company won't have to pay the victim's contract. His wife, played by Margaret Lindsay, insists on following him around, not only to help him solve the case, but to make sure he doesn't get too friendly with any members of the opposite sex, either. Ever since I first saw Lindsay as Nikki Porter in the Ellery Queen film series I became a fan, and I'm trying to collect as many of her B-movies as I can, with an emphasis on the mystery-comedies (she did a bunch of those around 1938-1943). "Honeymoon Deferred" is a minor but likable effort, with a well-written plot (although the mystery is mostly cleared-up, by the movie itself, long before the end), and Lindsay is as always a delight to watch. There is also an outstanding supporting performance by Anne Gwynne. **1/2 out of 4.
