| Too Much Marriage
Alec Guinness made a few silly comedies and "The Captain's Paradise" is the best. Mr. Guinness portrays an international naval captain who is married to two different women at the same time: Celia Johnson as your average housewife and Yvonne De Carlo as your average sexpot. The captain believes he has the perfect life with each wife until he finds out that he doesn't.

It is an adorable movie. Very funny! It read Mr. Guinness enjoyed working with Ms. De Carlo, whom he respected. She taught him to tango for their dancing scenes. This is Ms. De Carlo's best role. Also, this movie gives Ms. Johnson a chance to be funny. She usually is sad in her early movies.
