There's Nothing Worse Than A Bad 'B'.
16 August 2010 | by (Ramsey, NJ) – See all my reviews

Silk Lennox runs a nightclub which fronts for his illegal gangster activities. You can probably fill in the blanks because there's not much else to say, as this picture fails on almost every level. Lon Chaney,Jr. is the only professional connected with this amateurish production and seems trapped - he must have needed the money to appear in this, a picture in which he otherwise would not have been caught dead (no pun intended). And I'll bet he wished he could have turned into a werewolf.

The script is awful, the direction and editing are terrible and the acting is unbelievably bad. The only reason I give it such a high rating is for the musical numbers (remember, it's a night club), which are not at all bad and are surprisingly tuneful. The rest is predictable and uninteresting.

If it comes on TV, miss it. If it turns up in your DVD collection, skip it.
