Storyline

In this roman-a-clef for the infamous Lucky Luciano Trial, Mary Dwight and four roommates work as hostesses at the Club Intime, a "clip joint" that offers gambling, liquor, and female companionship to the "big spender" clientèle. When ruthless thug and pimp Johnny Vanning takes over all the clubs in town, the girls are forced to follow Vanning's rules and kick back on their "tips" in exchange for protection. Although she is not a hardened old hand like Gabby and Estella, Mary knows enough to sidestep Vanning's amorous advances. Unfortunately the more naive Mary Lou is impressed by Vanning's oily veneer of materialism and accepts invitations to "entertain" at the gangster's private parties. Mary's naive younger sister Betty arrives from college just when Mary and her roommates are arrested as material witnesses in the murder of one of the casino's non-paying customers. Vanning's corrupt lawyer frees the others but pressures Mary to commit perjury in order to discredit crusading ... Written by duke1029

Another Entertaining Bacon-Directed Film
22 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a pretty interesting tale of a sassy escort service-type woman (women, plural, if you include all her roommates) who work for a nightclub owner who was supposedly portraying famous gangster "Lucky" Luciano.

The woman featured is the famous Bette Davis, who never looked better. She was "hot" in the 1930s. After 1940 I can't say that, but she was always a great actress. She, as so many in the classic-era period, was also a recipient of soft- lens shots on all closeups.

Eduardo Cianelli plays the gangster does an effective job. Unlike Davis, his is a name that never became well-known. This film also has an up-and-coming actor by the name of Humphrey Bogart along with his soon-to-be-real-life-wife Mayo Methot. Get a load of some of the other female names in the cast: Lola Lane, Isabel Jewell and Rosalind Marquis

  • all "marked" women!




Lloyd Bacon directed this movie, which should tell you something. This guy was responsible for a ton of entertaining films.
