The final of four incredibly popular Squibs comedies produced in Great Britain and starring Betty Balfour, Squibs' Honeymoon is rather self-explanatory. Squibs and her longtime fiance, bobby Fred Groves, are honeymooning in Paris where the irrepressible Cockney flower girl is forced to masquerade as a boy in order to elude a gang of Apaches (gangsters, that is, not wild Indians!), British movie audiences were delighted with the down-to-earth Balfour, whose comedies were a refreshing change from the usual domestic fare of stuffy melodramas with literary aspirations. But when a group of influential critics began questioning the artistic merits of the Squibs comedies, producer-writer-director George Pearson unceremoniously ended the series, a reaction unthinkable in contemporary Hollywood.
