Classic Movie: Honeymoon for Three (1941)

Honeymoon for Three (1941)

This romantic comedy directed by Lloyd Bacon was one of Brent's attempts doing comedy.  The film got a bad review in the NYT whose critic didn't find it amusing at all.

For moviegoers at the time, the main interest in the film was the romance between George Brent and Ann Sheridan who married something like a year after the film finished shooting.  The marriage, however, didn't last nine months.

The two were said to be ill suited.  Friends said that he had been successful for years and was a homebody.  She was just beginning to really enjoy her success and wanted to party. 
Not a great movie, but a good watch, especially the wonderful Brent.  There are small roles for Charlie Ruggles, Jane Wyman, and Herbert Anderson (Dennis the Menace's father). 

The cast is much better than the script.
