An inordinate number of Hollywood detective films--including virtually the entire Bulldog Drummond series--extracted humor from the notion of "coitus interruptus." Honeymoon Deferred is the self-explanatory title of a 1940 Universal programmer. Edmund Lowe plays a private detective, newly married to the toothsome Margaret Lindsay. Just as they've settled into their honeymoon hideaway, Lowe's boss is murdered. Thus he heads off to suspectville, while wifey fumes and plays solitaire. If Honeymoon Deferred were any more lightweight, it would float away.
