Trivia

In the early minutes on the train heading into Cleveland, Secretary Anne Rogers tells Author Kenneth Bixby that he's scheduled that day for an interview on station KCLE. Call letters for all broadcast stations EAST of the Mississippi (with some exceptions) begin with the letter "W". Station KCLE is in Burleson, Texas. Oddly enough, Cleveland's airport code is CLE, and all airports in the U.S. have a prefix of "K", so Cleveland's full ICAO AIRPORT Code is "KCLE".

Station KYW started out in Philadelphia, but the letters were later assigned to the NBC affiliate in Cleveland. In the 1960s, the Philadelphia station went to court to get "their historic call letters" back, and won. The Cleveland station ended up as WKYC, and KYW remains one of the few station East of the Mississippi to have call letters beginning with "K". (Pittsburgh radio stations KDKA 1020 AM and KQV 1410 AM being other examples of the exception.) See more »

Slightly used and worn
15 March 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A slightly used version of a Broadway play Goodbye Again retitled Honeymoon For Three is served to us in this film. The original play by Allan Scott and George Haight had absolutely no one today's audience would remember in the premier roles but the Depression years had a good respectable run of 216 performances for 1932-33. Having bit parts though were those graduates of the Princeton Triangle Theater James Stewart and Myron McCormick. Later Warner Brothers did a film version starring Warren William and Joan Blondell.

All the major studios recirculated plots from previous film, but Warner Brothers slightly more than the others. George Brent and Ann Sheridan are the leads here, he a prominent author on a lecture tour and she his secretary and all around Girl Friday. And they're in love when an old flame from college Osa Massen shows up thinking she's the one on whom the main character is based.

Try as I might there's no way I believed that George Brent would have anything to do with anyone as loopy as Massen. And would you believe that on a rebound Massen marries Charlie Ruggles?

Possibly the first film adaption is better. But I'll have to see it to be the judge of that. In any event fans of the stars might like it, for others those stars have done worse.
