Tay Garnett's most peculiar comedy (1932) was originally written as a screaming melodrama about two doomed souls (William Powell as a convicted murderer, Kay Francis as a victim of the fatal but glamorous Movie Disease) who meet on a slow boat to Hawaii. But when no one would touch it, Garnett decided to turn it into a satire, writing in parts for two of Warner Brothers' most lovable grotesques, Frank McHugh and Aline MacMahon, and leaving his languorous lovers untouched. Unaccountably, it works.
