17-year-old Loretta Young is as cute as all get out in Road to Paradise. This compensates for the fact that Young isn't quite up to the dramatic demands of the script. She plays a dual role, as a society deb and her twin sister. Looking for thrills, Young ties up with a couple of crooks (Raymond Hatton and George Barraud), and ends up robbing her own sister's house. Ms. Young's leading man is the personable Jack Mulhall, in one of his last sizeable talkie roles. Road to Paradise was adapted by F. Hugh Herbert from a play by Dodson Mitchell and Zelda Sears.
