Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
In order to collect his inheritance, a young man must travel around the world with only two cents in this silly melodrama written and directed by the otherwise capable George B. Seitz. Jack Mulhall makes the journey via cruise ship, stowing away in Blanche Mehaffey's stateroom. He is discovered, and they are both thrown ashore when docking in Andalusia. Mehaffey, it turns out, is an Andalusian princess and they arrive in the middle of a palace revolution. Blanche Mehaffey attempted unsuccessfully to keep Passport to Paradise and many of her other programmers off television in the late 1940s, claiming with some justice that exhibition would ruin her reputation. Like most of her later vehicles, Passport to Paradise was produced by Mehaffey's then-husband, sound engineer Ralph M. Like.
