A door to a dressing room is slammed, shattering a good portion of the mirror attached to the door. A moment later, when the door is opened, the breakage has changed so that part of the mirror is restored. See more »
Detective Victor McLaglen has to investigate a backstage murder and not mess up the debut of pal Jack Oakie's musical revue. You won't care about the rather hum-drum murder, the musical numbers will floor you. During a performance of "Sweet Marijuana", (this virtual lullaby to reefer has topless back-up dancers!) blood from the murder victim in the rafters drips down on the dancing girls! Toby Wing is fun and cute as the flirty chorus girl with a crush on Oakie. Loads fun here!
