Back in the good 'ol days when sexual harassment was just innocent fun!
26 January 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In "Dance Hall", Cesar Romero plays Duke, a tough and suave womanizer who owns a dance hall. When he gets a new singer, Lily (Carole Landis), he immediately starts laying on the charm in order to dry to get in her skirt. But she'll have none of this and she realizes her boss is a womanizer. However, through most of the rest of the film, Duke is a perv--constantly hitting on Lily and acting like a boorish pig. By the end of the film, Duke's not only continued to sexually harass Lily at every turn but also cheats everyone with a lottery drawing. So what's Lily to do? Bail him out and pretend everything is okay!!

This film illustrates many bad lessons for young men and women. First, sexual harassment is just innocent fun. Two, that a guy who sexually harasses you and cheats people is excellent boyfriend material!! So, although the acting is quite good, the story is awful and sets back the human race about 100 years. Not one of the finer moments in Hollywood history.
