Storyline

Bill is a hot shot dancer who partners with Jazzbo, until he sees Molly at the dance. He enters the Waltz with Molly and wins first prize - and they wind up being married that same night. Now they are free of their parents nagging and their own bosses. 24 hours - no dancing as in-laws are visiting. 24 days - the Apartment is finished so off to the Hoffman's Parisian Dance Palace. Molly can only dance the Waltz and not the hot new jazz dance so she leaves and Bill follows. They are both unhappy, Bill has two left feet when it comes to romance.

Fantastic dance sequence opens this film
4 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

under the credits. It then settles into a routine comedy about a young man (Grant Withers) who is obsessed with dancing and marries a girl (Sue Carol) he meets at a dance. The usual domestic squabbles arise. Good support from silent comedienne Kate Price as well as Edna Murphy, Eddie Phillips & Sid Silvers. The girl who dances during the opening credits can also be spotted in the film. I wonder who she is?
