When the Monogram feature film package was sold to television circa 1949, the title of this one was changed to "Club Paradise" in order to avoid confusion with another Monogram film bearing the same title, Sensation Hunters (1933) which was also in the same group. See more »
This picture exhibits the same strain of pessimistic fatalism that underpins Edgar Ulmer's "Detour." Robert Lowery's blase demeanor is perfect for the role of the blue ribbon heel, Isabel Jewell is on hand to do her reliable turn as the cynical doxie, and there are a couple of lively tap numbers thrown in for good measure during a night club sequence.
The hopeless moodiness of a factory town cabaret is effectively established throughout.
Pair it with "Detour" and you'll have the perfect downbeat double bill, provided you accompany it with a steady stream of Chesterfield cigarette smoke, and a couple of quickly downed "side-cars." Good job Monogram.
