I have never seen this film up until recently and was amazed at the great talent of Joan Crawford(Ivy "Bunny" Stevens) "Humoresque" '46 with John Garfield. Joan was very sexy and wore very revealing clothes for the early 1930's, her dancing and singing was unbelievable and she was so very pretty, slim and trim, not like the real "Mommie Dearest" character her daughter told us about. Clark Gable (Carl Loomis),"Gone With the Wind"'39 was Ivy's prince charming as a Salvation Army convert and when she appears in the park with her beautiful white dress, you just knew there was going to be an immediate CONVERSION OF SOULS! Veteran actor, Roscoe Karns, (Gred Geer) played a great supporting role. This film is filled with surprises, even a little African American Boy stealing a bite from a girls doughnut tore me up, there is many deep soul searching messages in this film and LOTS OF LAUGHTER and one attempted jump off a bridge. ENJOY!
