Storyline

Second Honeymoon, Raoul McLish stops over in Miami Beach where he runs into his ex-wife, Vicky Benton, and her new husband Bob, a belt manufacturer. At first Bob enjoys Raoul’s presence – in part because Vicky is his not Raoul’s and in part because Raoul is a lot of fun. The fun wears thin for Bob as his seriousness and possessiveness take over. When Bob leaves for a few days to settle a labor dispute at his factory, Vicky and Raoul spend time together, Winchell’s column implies untoward behavior, Bob barks at Vicky, and that gets her back up. Can things be sorted out? Help comes from Raoul’s upright valet, McTavish, and a principled cigarette girl, Joy, whom Raoul picks up.

Depression escapism with beautiful people

“Second Honeymoon” is a fluffy comedy which probably had its genesis in “Private Lives.” It concerns a beautiful divorcée (Loretta Young) who, upon marrying her second husband (Lyle Talbot) runs into her first (Tyrone Power). Everyone is rich, magnificently dressed, and does a lot of traveling in the spirit of Hollywood escapism during the Depression.

This movie is talky and doesn’t have the energy or enough of the humor of “Cafe Metropole,” another early Power-Young film. Even with an 85 minute or thereabouts running time, it felt long.

There are some very good performances. Stuart Erwin plays Power’s valet, and he has an interesting characterization. Claire Trevor is delightful in a supporting role, and Marjorie Weaver brings liveliness to the part of Joy.

Young is absolutely fabulous looking and is appropriately jealous and angry when the script calls for it. Power is absurdly handsome, just stunning, and alas, doesn’t have too much to do. It’s an extremely lightweight role. It’s probably just as well. It was difficult to do anything but ogle when he was on screen in this one.
