Its a Red Hot Riot of a Jazz Age short ! Its a Pre-Code Panic!
13 October 1998 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

I am so glad a fine copy of this Technicolor Jazz age gem survives today! Using the vernacular of its era, "Its a Wow"! In one scene, a crowd of naysayers and religious Puritans are gathered at the Cabaret entrance. Satan's slick salesman Eddie Buzzell tempts them all by singing a hot jazz tune,"Take off your Sunday Best Dress, cut out the I-C-E, put on your best asbestos, and come Hot It Up with me!" Soon the protest becomes a burlesque strip-tease as the puritans fling off their religious uniforms, respectability and moral restraints as well! The puritan women now stripped to their little french teddies and looking very much like the lust craving MGM chorus girls, engage in a sinful jazz dancing frenzy as they all mob the door to get in and Go To The Devil! Of course there is a clever twist at the end that rectifies its antics. Loaded with vaudeville style one-liners and cleverly mounted with some astonishing sets, this risque short has captured the "Devil May Care" spirit of its decadent Jazz age. I feel so guilty after watching this short I think I will have to put another $20 dollar bill in the church plate next Sunday!
