Jack Oakie is a band leader at a dance hall who is worried that his best friend (William Collier), the band's saxophonist, is getting in over his head with taxi dancer Miriam Hopkins. Oakie arranges for Collier to get hired by another band in order to get him out of town for a month, hoping this will cool down the affair. In the ensuing month, gangster George Raft shows up with designs on Hopkins and Oakie himself starts falling for the dame. There's a shoot-out at the end and some great music throughout, including 'St. Louis Blues' as sung by Hopkins. Lyda Roberti is fun as Fanny Zobowolski who puts the moves on a reluctant Eugene Palette. Viewed at Cinesation in Massillon Ohio, October 2004.
