The Dumbest Thing I Ever Did was Marry, All Three Times . . .
Victor Orsatti was a talent agent who represented stars like Edward G. Robinson, Judy Garland, Betty Grable, director Frank Capra and a long list of the Hollywood elite. It seems that he had a personal eye for beauty because all of his marriages were to the most beautiful girls he met. His first marriage was to June Lang, the star of this movie.
June Lang was a sexy and beautiful blonde who appeared in the sexy ‘Temptations of 1930’ because the thirteen-year-old beauty had convinced the casting director that she was really eighteen years old. When she married Victor Orsatti in 1937 she was twenty years old, and all of the most famous Hollywood stars attended. That marriage lasted only six weeks.
June’s movie career was still rising when she married handsome and wealthy Johnny Roselli in 1940, a couple of weeks after this movie premiered. Unfortunately, Johnny was a gangster, a real gangster, and for some reason Hollywood didn’t like him or the bad publicity his marriage to June created, so June’s career hit the skids, and they would divorce before two years had passed.
June was a bit luckier with her third marriage to Lieutenant William Morgan. Their marriage lasted ten years, but also ended in divorce. June said that she didn’t like single life, but admitted that she never chose her husbands wisely.
In this adventure she is a wealthy aviatrix flying around the world who makes a stop at a South Pacific island inhabited by a small U.S. Marine base. Two marines will chase her romantically, and a gun-running smuggler will capture her and try to force her to help him smuggle a shipment of guns. It will be up to the Marines to come to her rescue, as only Marines can do. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
