Charmingly unconvincing
11 January 2008 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Jean Simmons never performed without vanity. Even here as a struggling sophisticate (a schoolteacher who takes a part-time secretarial job in a "sleazy" nightclub run by guys named Tony and Rocco), Simmons is coiffed to the gills and everything about her breathes Park Avenue. This inconsequential drama-lite is peopled with lovable low-lifes and features a smoky but mostly scrubbed-clean hot-spot at its center, yet the energy and fake-pizazz may win you over. Paul Douglas and Tony Francisosa work well together as co-managers of the club, and Simmons (nicknamed "Baby"!) is tolerable as the intellectual who improves their personalities. Good supporting cast includes Neile Adams (looking like a cross between Carol Haney and a young Liza Minnelli) as Joan Blondell's daughter, and Julie Wilson as a torchy singer who comes on like Patti Page. Robert Wise directed, under the usual MGM gloss. **1/2 from ****
