Of Joe Pasternak's 57 MGM productions released between 1942 and 1966, this film was just one of two which failed to garner a contemporary New York Times review. The second movie was Looking for Love (1964). See more »

Dull, barely-film-noir story with Mickey Rooney as a nightclub drummer mixed up with some bad folks. Highlight of this film are the dance numbers featuring Sally Forrest (who plays the cigarette girl/Mickey's girl/featured nightclub dancer.) Sally very rarely got to dance on film so it's nice to see her though the numbers tend to play like auditions. Not as sexy as her dance segments in the colorful "Son of Sinbad" and "Excuse My Dust" films, but her performance is more in tune to her great film noir roles with Ida Lupino. Interesting hybrid of her dance talents and her film noir fame.
