Damon Runyan meets D'Oyly Carte!
29 October 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What a strange film! Some quite witty dialogue between Armstrong and the very pretty Irene Hervey, who plays the 10 cents a dance hostess. I found the "Swingland" scenes fascinating. And plenty for the G and S fan by way of set pieces. Robert Armstrong is quite convincing as the ripped-off punter intent on retrieving his cash from the girl who's relieved him of his money. It's hard to see who this film is aimed at. Fans of stock crime or romance films would be (possibly) annoyed at the amount of G and S, while operetta fans may not like the rather silly, contrived plot. I'm not sure if the phrase "genre busting" had been coined at that time (I suspect not!) but I feel this film falls into this category. All in all, this film kept me watching. A must for any G and S completist!
