Apart from a chance to see Etta McDaniel, I can think of no reason to watch this very boring film.
23 January 2017 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I must be honest...near the very end of this film the power went out in my house. And, for the life of me, I couldn't bring myself to finish the last few minutes...it was that tedious a movie! I should have known better, as it was from Grand National, perhaps the worst small movie production companies ever!

When the film begins, Joan is in trouble. While she has gotten her bar ready for its grand opening, she didn't realize that her partner had absconded with their money. There's only one possible solution....have a GREAT opening night and make enough to pay off the creditors. But things don't go so smoothly and, unfortunately, this also means that the audience is going to have to listen to some dull singing and a dopey plot involving the Navy and a boxing match.

So, the acting is bad, the music bad and the movie dull. So why watch the film? I have no idea...unless you are the curious type and want to see Etta McDaniel, Hattie McDaniel's sister.
