Ugh!  IT IS NOT ON THE ON DEMAND!!

 

Roland Young's "Pleasure Cruise" made its TCM debut last night and I was not able to watch it but it is not in the standby list at SLING TV although the other Roland Young movies that were before and after it are!

 

TCM, please put it up!!!

 

i have been unable to locate it anywhere and the reviews all say that I must see the ending!  

 

What happened??

 

TCM, please put it up in the list of movies to watch!!

I watched it and could reveal the ending if you want. Certainly not every day TCM airs a pre-Zanuck Fox movie, so I made a point of checking it out.

 

I don't know if there's any crossover between the people who post on this board and people who provide the little user reviews on a movie's page in the TCM database. I absentmindedly checked out the entry for Pleasure Cruise while watching it and there were three "reviews" all posted the day of the airing just pummeling TCM for airing such an obscure movie in prime time. While these posts were attributed to three different posters, they all said the exact same thing in nearly the same words. I'm 99 per cent sure it was one person pretending to be three people. Finally, another poster told him/her to put a sock in it, noting TCM had already aired Citizen Kane and the venerable North by Northwest earlier in the day. You can check out this amusing little exchange here:

I think most of us around here crave for variety, but I wonder how much we represent the "typical" TCM viewer. This person clearly wanted "the hits" in the prime time hours. He/she ought to be pleased in February.

Reviews I referred to are online but not TCM reviews.  I have not reviewed any. 

 

Do you have SLINGTV?

 

Generally, the movie is played live and then goes on to a list of movies "On Demand" with no fast forward nor record features.  

 

It is rare to skip and movie and for me, it is rare to not have seen a pre code; my favorite period.  I was only able to watch the beginning and heard the intro from Ben M who said it was a "TCM premier..."

 

I hope they put it on the selection of movies to watch where it stays up for about 5 days or so.

PS:  thanks for not listing the spoiler.  

 

I am going to search online for it, in the event TCM does not air it.  

 

On YouTube, some of these pre code movies have their titles deliberately misspelled so they can remain available.  

 

There are quite a few pre code fans who would like nothing but "obscure" movies from this period.  

 

I am one of them.

Yeah, they did not put it on the On Demand list and it is not on you tube nor on Epix nor the usual sources.

 

How did it end?

Pleasure Cruse was not added to the Watch later section of Sling TV app.  

 

Would you mind posting a "SPOILER ALERT" heading and revealing the ending?  

 

I cannot find the movie anywhere and methinks I missed a fun one.

Here's a plot description, from the AFI Catalogue of Feature Films, 1931-40:

(And, oh yeah, SPOILER ALERT!)

 

After he loses his fortune, English gentleman Andrew Poole is delighted to discover that his fiancée Shirley still wishes to marry him. Shirley works in an office, while Andrew tends the house and writes a novel. By their first wedding anniversary, Andrew has become consumed with jealousy over the men Shirley meets at work. Fed up with Andrew's incessant nagging, Shirley decides that she needs a "marriage holiday" and books passage for herself on the ocean liner Nebula . Andrew says that he is going fishing but instead gets a job in the Nebula 's barber shop. He spies on Shirley as she makes friends with other passengers and scares off one of her potential suitors, Murchison, by intimating that Shirley and her husband, who is secretly on the boat, run a scam to blackmail her admirers. Andrew then frightens off another male passenger, Rollins, by telling him that Shirley's jealous husband killed the last man he caught in her boudoir. Meanwhile, Mrs. Signus, a flirtatious older woman, develops a liking for Andrew, whom she mistakenly thinks is a prince in hiding. One morning, Andrew is spying on Shirley from Mrs. Signus' cabin when Mrs. Signus suddenly appears and catches him. She then hides him in the closet when Shirley arrives for a chat. Shirley confides that her husband is the only man who has ever kissed her and that she would like to have more experience. Andrew sneezes in the closet, and Shirley assumes that the hidden man is Mrs. Signus' lover. She thanks Mrs. Signus for her example and prepares to attend a gala costume ball that evening. Shirley is accompanied by English playboy Richard Taversham, who is dressed as "Romeo." Andrew, disguised as "Neptune," overhears as Richard romances Shirley and begs her to leave her cabin door open that night so that he may visit her. While Richard is in his cabin preparing for the tryst, Andrew steals some of his "Stolen Love" cologne, then ties his cabin door shut. Meanwhile, Shirley has become tipsy on the champagne sent by Richard and imagines that Andrew's photograph indicates for her to lock her door. Deciding to be faithful, Shirley locks the door but does not notice as the bolt does not catch. Andrew enters after Shirley has turned out the lights and makes love to her without saying a word. When he leaves, he takes the monogrammed cigarette case that he gave to her before they were married. The next morning, Richard apologizes to Shirley for not coming to her cabin, and Shirley realizes in horror that she does not know the identity of her lover. She disembarks early and goes home, where her friend, Judy Mills, advises her not to tell Andrew of her "infidelity." Just then, Richard arrives and Shirley is confused by his claim that the barber shop attendant gave him her address and said that she wanted him to visit her. Andrew arrives home a short time later, and Richard is shocked to recognize him as the attendant. As Andrew escorts Richard to the door, he shows him the cigarette case, and the relieved Richard nods that he understands Andrew's subterfuge. Shirley sees the interchange in a mirror and figures out the deception her husband has practiced. She confesses that she spent the night with another man, but states that she is not ashamed, for she is proud to have appealed to "such a lover." Shirley then tells Andrew that her lover is in the bedroom, and as he looks at himself in the mirror, she informs him that she knew all along that he was on the boat. She then tells him to knock the next time he wants to make love to a lady, and closes the bedroom door. Andrew smiles and knocks, then goes into the bedroom.
