Carole Landis was Great
18 November 2007 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Managed to get this film after many years and am a big fan of Carole Landis who was a great talented actress and never got the right breaks in Hollywood. Carole made many films and this particular film was great with Cesar Romero, (Duke McKay) a dance hall manager who hired Lily Brown,(Landis) as a singer and the two of them fight like cats and dogs. Duke McKay is a ladies man who gets involved with most of the women who visit his dance hall or work for him as waitresses. Lily puts Duke in his place and plays hard to get, but deep down she likes the guy more that he realizes. Carol Landis sings all of the songs in this picture and looked radiant through out the picture and these two actors made this a great Classic 1941 film. Carol was also great in the film, "I Wake Up Screaming".
