Night in Paradise.
5 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was made at the end of the war and most of the big name stars were out of Hollywood contributing, however one star that was around at the time was Merle Oberon, at 39 years of age, she had lost 15 pounds and was in excellent shape and was called to do this film. The story in itself was very poor and the film as lavished as it was with a low budget for Hollywood, but extreme for Universal at the time of 1.5 million dollars was at times boring. The only thing for fans and movie goers that kept the interest was Merle Oberon with its luxurious costumes and accessories and make up and hair dressing. The movie was a money looser for Universal, but maintains its status of a classic film for those fans of Merle Oberon and new star for Universal the male counter part. It is a film that on DVD through TCM Movie sales is a must have and should give you some entertainment. Overall the rating I am giving this film for its star and effort is a 5. Again the only thing that makes me watch it over and over is Merle Oberon.
