The lovely young star of a Broadway show is giving an interview to several newspaper writers and tells them about her wild life, parts of which involved "hula dancing" in Africa and an involvement with a dangerous Portuguese smuggler. Unbeknownst to her, the smuggler has showed up at the theater on that very night. Written by
A catastrophe! I like a lot of early sound films but this is to awful to describe. An incoherent mess that Warner's pulled before release and retitled "Adventures In Africa." This was an improvement on the original title. Having read a Barbara Stanwyck biography, I wanted to see Frank Fay's performance. You can see why his movie career failed. Some reviewers point to this movie as a transitional sound film and it might be better in it's original lost Technicolor print. Color would only point out the garish sets and costumes and Gong Show performances. Don't waste part of your life on this. If you want to see an entertaining musical from this period wait for TCM to show "Sally" or "Spring Is Here".
