Did You Know?


When the Monogram feature film package was first sold to television around 1948, this was initially shown under its original title, "Sensation Hunters", but when Monogram's 1933 film of the same title--Sensation Hunters (1933)-- was sold to television about two years later, the title of this one was changed to "Club Paradise" in order to avoid confusion between the two.

All just a bit too downbeat.....
17 March 2020 | by CinemaSerfSee all my reviews

A young girl (Doris Merrick) with a reprobate father and brother ends up a dancer in the "Paradise Club" eking out her living in this saloon/brothel where she becomes even more downtrodden and forlorn before falling for a particularly bad egg. The problem is, this all takes half the film and I have really rather lost the will, now. The remainder of this rather drab melodrama consists of poor dance/musical routines (from, admittedly, rather glamorous dancers) with occasional flashes of talent from Robert Lowery as "Danny". The end is inconclusive - but not in a "please let there be a sequel " way.
