Better than it's reputation!
3 September 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

'Two For Tonight' usually gets dismissed as a 'B' movie, and not one of Bing's best, and yet it is a pleasant little 61 minutes, with some catchy songs delivered with the usual flair from the movie's greatest crooner! The lovely Joan Bennett and Bing, make a handsome couple and have some nice chemistry between them! And another plus for this little movie, is that it has the funniest nightclub scene ever filmed, anywhere, anytime! Always a pleasure to see character actors like Charles Lane popping up in these old films, they can turn a small role into a little gem of a performance! There are about 8 of Bing's 1930's films yet to make an appearance on DVD, and this is one of them, hopefully one day it will, to the delight of all fans of the great crooner, of which I'm one!
