Decided to watch this film and see what was going on in 1937 and what the charming ladies looked like in order to attract the opposite sex. Well, hats were the in THING, along with FURS, and some pretty nice styles with wild woman's hairdo's. Joan Bennett, (Wendy Van Klettering),"Scarlet Street",'45, was very slim and trim and very attractive with a rather sexy voice. Wendy was not very happy about getting married and became " A Runaway Bride" in the 1930's. The husband she was to marry was, Alan Mowbray,(Henry Morgan),"I Wake Up Screaming",'41, who played a rather dumb role and gave a great supporting role. Warner Baxter, (George Curson), "Shadows in the Night",'41, ran a model agency and had all the best looking gals show off their fancy clothing. There was a great scene at the "COTTON CLUB", and fantastic dancing and way out musicians. If you want to take a look way back into the past and see how that generation enjoyed themselves, this is worth viewing.
