With the way this show has Betty working two jobs and the way at night she works for her uncle as a dancing girl in his night club I really like what happens when the ice man helps Betty's uncle with the problems of those gangsters because this shows things like they were back in the 1930's of having those gangsters that would be rough on people over money and how some others care for those people. One of the funniest scenes near the start of the film is when the ice man takes a block of ice up the stairs to Betty and by the time he gets to her Apartment the ice has melted down to the size of a cube that will fit in her cup. That is one thing i get a laugh out of.
