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

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

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 good songs and it's all worth seeing again.
