Love in High Places
23 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Odd film about a trio of trapeze artists trying to make the bigtime in Paris. Anna Neagle stars as Pat who is the object of affection of both her partners: Tullio Carimnati as Toni, and Leslie Banks as Mac.

Trouble ensues after Banks expresses his love for Neagle and she rejects him. He hits the bottle and blames Carminati for his failure to win her. As they as practicing (with a net) Banks (who is the catcher) drops Carminati who falls into the net. The manager (Horace Hodges) is alarmed but no one else seems to be bothered.

On the night of the big show, Banks, who has overheard Neagle, gets very moody. As Carminati makes his jump, Banks catches only one hand. With Carminato dangling over the stage (no net) Neagle collapses in a faint on her perch and nearly falls. When the men see her in danger, they quickly get over their spat and race to save her before she falls.

The act is a big hit, but it wasn't part of the act. How will they resolve things? Neagle looks great and performs some of the aerial work. She also gets to dance a little. Banks and Carminati seem too old for their parts but are otherwise good. Hodges is fine as the manager, and Nicholas Koline is good as the comic with a duck.

Not the usual Neagle film, but certainly worth a look.
