"Little known 1939 film starring the beautiful and classy british blonde star, Madeleine Carroll and american, guy-next-door-type, Fred Mac Murray, who play opposite each other with much chemistry.Carroll is a business woman, who's the executive Vice-President of a Department Store in N.Y. and doesn't care for anything except her career, and there comes carefree Mac Murray, who lives in Bali, and changes it all...Excellent supporting by Helen Broderick as Carroll's friend, who contributes with most of the picture's wisecracks, Allan Jones as a Met. Opera singer, who loves Carroll and wonderful child actress Carolyn Lee, who steals many-a-scene from the grown-ups.Look for Akim Tamiroff, as comic, meddling window-cleaner.The picture quality is O.K."
An Entertaining Romantic Comedy

""Honeymoon in Bali" stars one of the most beautiful blondes ever to grace the silver screen, English actress Madeleine Carroll, & Fred MacMurray, who was good at comic & dramatic roles. Hitchcock starred Carroll in "The Secret Agent" & "The 39 Steps." She was Bob Hope's "My Favorite Blonde." Carroll plays a successful executive who is married to her career & has no time for marriage & a family. MacMurray's character would today be a male chauvinist, but back in 1939 most women contented themselves with being housewives & mothers. MacMurray challenges Carroll's way of life. She is both attracted to & repelled by him. When MacMurray brings along a little girl for whom he is responsible, Carroll's mothering instincts are aroused, & she realizes that one can love a career, but a career can't love one back.
Akim Tamiroff adds humor as a voyeuristic window-washer who becomes interested in Carroll's life in her office.
The Front Row Entertainment DVD is satisfactory in picture & sound..."
