Storyline

Horace Jackson (John Beal) and his bride, Millie ('Wanda McKay' qv)),check into a New York City hotel room for their one-night honeymoon before he reports for induction into the arm the next day. But intruders, led by gangster Frankie Saxton (Tom Neal) and his henchmen constantly invade their privacy searching for the hidden loot stashed by fellow mobster Joe Richmond (Lynton Brent). It does not help that Horace keeps placing the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the inside of the room door. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Honeymooners making bad choices
7 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

Monogram combined it's standard lowbrow crime/action with comedy for this film, which is a bit weak on the comedy side. It has it's moments, but you can't help but think the situation is ridiculous. A newlywed couple with only a day before the husband is shipped off to service in WWII chooses to travel instead of doing what a newlywed, presumably virgin couple with only a day would actually do. There is a subtext of lustful desire being thwarted, but it is obviously muted due to the era.

Through no fault of their own they get mixed up with gangsters who have been in their hotel room trying to kill enemies. Mix-ups with a missing body, police ineptitude and misidentification of the groom as gangster kingpin keeps this running for most of the film. This might have worked better with a cast and director who could pull it off, but it falls a bit flat here, though not entirely.

It has classic elements of 1930s screwball comedy, though a little late for Monogram in 1942 to begin cutting their chops. It's fun as a period piece, but far from great cinema.
