A detective has "four hours to kill" at a music theater before he has to deliver his prisoner. This movie really is a copy of the "Grand Hotel" format. What makes this movie stand out is the music soundtrack. All the time the movie is going on there is a Broadway-style show going on in the background. The music is good! It makes you think that this would be a great show to see, but you never get to see it. This really is the reason that most people remember liking this movie, but they can't remember why. I really do not know if it is available on either DVD or VHS, or if it was released by the studio (Paramount?) It's an average move, but excellent soundtrack. Catch it if you like 30's show musicals.
