Storyline

The alert atmosphere of a large-city newspaper office and its giant presses combines with the back-stage atmosphere of the theatre, set against the sinister shadow of a bootleg gang and the glitter of a big musical comedy "first night" in a whirlwind of dramatic action. A hot-shot newspaper reporter and a Broadway show-girl provide the romance. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Familiar but well done!
15 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

Just by reading the cast list on IMDb, you can see at a glance what's wrong with this movie. Of course, if you are familiar with the actors, you don't need to watch the movie at all! But even if everyone in the cast line-up seems totally unfamiliar, you will experience no trouble in sorting out every strand in the plot by the end of the first reel. So all you have to sustain you throughout the rest of the film is the charm, charisma and/or potency of the players on the screen. Fortunately, they stand that test rather well. Grant Withers makes a surprisingly charismatic hero. Marguerite De La Motte, of course is as beautiful as they come, while John Miljan's sneering impresario comes across as nastily as ever. In fact, if anything, Miljan overdoes it! Nevertheless, there are quite a few potent set pieces for the interaction of players and plot that are made more menacing by Ray June's noirish photography. As for me, I can't say that I ever lost all interest in the movie, the plot or the players, even though they seemed as familiar to me as the buttons on my overcoat. Available on a very good Grapevine DVD.
