Today’s highlighted film is Once Upon A Honeymoon from 1942. This is the story of an American burlesque dancer who poses as a society woman to marry a European baron, not knowing that he is Hitler’s aide. She meets an American reporter who tells her the truth about her husband, and they set off across Europe to stay alive and inform their native country about the Nazis’ real agenda. This film stars Ginger Rogers, Cary Grant, and Walter Slezak. It was produced and directed by Leo McCarey and released by RKO Radio Pictures. This is a perfect Code film because of its proper handling of divorce and remarriage and the candid way it reveals the truth about Hitler, Nazism, and what it meant to be a Jew in Europe in 1939. I like this movie because of the great interaction between its actors and its rare look at Europe at the beginning of World War II. My favorite thing about it is the way it blends comedy and drama, interspersing intense bombing scenes with slapstick humor!
