Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 2.0 4.0

Frank Tuttle directed Waikiki Wedding starring Bing Crosby (as Tony Marvin), Bob Burns (as Shad Buggle), Martha Raye (as Mrytle Finch) and Shirley Ross (as Georgia Smith). This romantic comedy came out in 1937, has a total running time of 39 minutes, won an Oscar and is featured in black and white. Tony Marvin is an advertising executive who puts on the “Miss Pineapple Princess” pageant. He ends up falling for the winner, Georgia Smith. The film is set in Hawaii, which means there’s a beautiful scenery and background throughout the movie. Georgia doesn’t care much for Hawaii and would like to go home, but Tony tries to keep her from leaving because he’s falling for her.
