A good cast does its best with "Her Kind of Man," a 1946 Warner Brothers film directed by Frederick DeCordova. The film stars Zachary Scott, Janis Paige, Dane Clark, and Faye Emerson.
Scott plays Steve Maddox, a gambler who eventually opens his own nightclub with a gambling establishment in the back. His sister Ruby (Emerson) is married to another club owner, Joe (George Tobias). Steve is in love with the beautiful Georgia (Paige), a singer. Dane Clark plays a reporter who is in love with her, too, and would love to get her out of Steve's clutches.
Pretty much by the book. The big interest for me was seeing the young Paige. Growing up, she was always the glamorous older woman. My father always loved her. She was a gorgeous young woman, too. Though a good singer, her voice was that of a belter, so she's dubbed here for a more lyrical sound. I was disappointed the whole song "Body and Soul" wasn't performed. It's one of my favorites.
