Terrific Rosalind Russell
9 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fresh from her Tony-winning turn in "Wonderful Town," the musical version of her "My Sister Eileen" film, Rosalind Russell returned to films in this bright pastiche of song and dance set in Las Vegas.

Russell plays a gambler's daughter who's pining away in a dull job in Providence when she learns she has inherited a half interest in a Las Vegas hotel. Off she goes with her dotty aunt (Marion Lorne), assuming she now owns the Flamingo Hotel, but it's owned by Fernando Lamas.

While romancing Lamas she cajoles Eddie Albert into putting money into the rundown wreck of a hotel she really owns with James Gleason. She also befriends the Flamingo's dumb blonde star (Gloria De Haven). Among the male dancers are Don Crichton ("The Carol Burnett Show") and George Chakiris (billed as George Chakaris).

Russell performs three numbers: "If You'll Only Take a Chance," "Birmin'ham." and "Homesick Hillbilly" with great energy.

Among the supporting players are Marjorie Bennett (at the craps table), Jesse White, Larry Gates (as the father), Douglas Fowley, George Chandler, Robert Fortier, Shelley Fabares, and Bess Flowers.

Everyone is good in this one; Rosalind Russell is great.
