The great Lottery fix
8 May 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Lily (Carole Landis) arrives in town to sing at the Dance Hall which is managed by Duke (Cesar Romero). Also at the club is pianist Joe (William Henry) who becomes good friends with Lily. Duke and Lily have an on-off romance which is interrupted by wealthy Max (J Edward Bromberg)...

This is an entertaining film due to the 2 leads, Romero and Landis, who interact well with each other throughout the story. Both bring their own highlights to the proceedings, Landis with her singing and Romero throws in a bit of dancing and has some cool mannerisms. The film is funny, the dialogue is entertaining, we see some great dance moves and it's all worth seeing again.
