Storyline

A crusading D.A. orders the police to shut down a South Seas themed girly show and arrest its participants. The lead dancer eludes jail time when her attorney persuades the judge that she has a (fictitious) elderly mother to take care of. The attorney then scours the local senior homes for a suitably sweet maternal type to fit the bill. At the same time, the dancer seeks her revenge by seducing the D.A.'s ambitious but naive son. But her newly acquired mama eventually exerts some influence on the girl. Written by goblinhairedguy

"Boogie Hula"
16 June 2007 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

A song with that name is sung in a nightclub. Hawaii and Harlem seem to be viewed as equally foreign and exotic.

Ann Corio is appealing as the title character. She was indeed a famous burlesque dancer. Whether she wore sarongs or not, I'm not sure.

This is a Monogram picture. Their movies are generally fun. They were made very cheaply and it shows -- endearingly.

Irene Ryan is the comic relief. Yes, Granny from TV, but with dark hair. And comic she is! At first she does a kind of Gracie Allen routine. But her singing is hilarious: She sings a song in close-up and her lower lip trembles as she sings. She is in the Cass Daly, Joan Davis tradition. What a tradition, too.

(And Judy Canova was in that tradition - sort of. She was in a class of her own: a very high class. I wish her movies would be brought out on DVD!) This movie is no great work of art. But it's pleasant and Corio is quite some dish.
