Once Upon a Honeymoon ★★½ 1942

Set in 1938, Grant is an American radio broadcaster reporting on the oncoming war. Rogers is the ex-showgirl who unknowingly marries a Nazi. In this strange, uneven comedy, Grant tries to get the goods on him and also rescue Rogers. The plot is basic and uneven with Grant attempting to expose the Nazi and save Rogers. However, the slower moments are offset by some fairly surreal pieces of comedy. 116m/B VHS . Ginger Rogers, Cary Grant, Walter Slezak, Albert Dekker; D: Leo McCarey; C: George Barnes.
