While on their honeymoon , a reporter and his new bride stumble upon a ring of fifth columnists.

Someone, perhaps veteran B director Phil Rosen, created okay, one-scene moments for former A stars Dorothy Lee (Wheeler and Woolsey pics), Evelyn Knapp, and Betty Compson.  Someone also just saw “His Girl Friday ”, so lots of pressroom reporter camaraderie with one a star reporter with marriage issues.  There’s too much battle of the sexes, verbal sparring between reporter Ford and wife Parker.  Unfortunately, instead of capable, adult feminist Roz, we have the beautiful but insipid Jean Parker, at home twiddling her thumbs and fuming.  She complains he’s missing dinner.  He whines and lies.
