Audience Reviews for Once Upon a Honeymoon

Here's a curio of the type you don't often see: the Hollywood propaganda machine teaching head-in-the-sand Americans (hhhey, that's like me!) about foreign affairs, specifically the gathering storm in Europe preceding America's entry into WWll. And so debonair Cary Grant and saucy Ginger Rogers (charismatic teachers if ever there was!) lightly dance across Europe, with romantic interludes aplenty between countries (tough to qualify in those years as she plays a woman just married!), just one step ahead of Hitler. Its a fascinating goldmine to students of Americana and of WWll history. There's one particularly interesting segment wherein Rogers and character actor Albert Dekker waltz through a pantheon of Hollywood dialects representing the approved Hollywood version of America that makes this oddity worth viewing all on its own, the strains of America The Beautiful playing softly in the background.
As a film to see strictly on its own merits ... ehhh, not so much.
