That's the kind of hairpin I am.
20 December 2012 | by (Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico) – See all my reviews

A dentist recalls his past as he prepares his chair for the man who was responsible for him spending time in the penitentiary. Sounds like a film noir, but this is actually a turn-of-the-century musical with Dennis Morgan, Don Defore and Dorothy Malone. I was a bit surprised, but given that it's directed by Raoul Walsh, I stayed with it for a bit and then couldn't bring myself to stop watching. This is necessary viewing for Dorothy Malone fans. Her scenes with Dennis Morgan seem racier than they actually are. He is not bad either, referring to himself as a "hairpin" as in "I'm that kind of hairpin". Even the singing is good, with an all-female barbershop quartet, and way more than a few well-deserved laughs.
