| The dangers of drinking
Goodness me, that was a bit depressing. If you drink alcohol, you go blind! If you pull your plonker, you go blind. You can't do anything that is fun otherwise you will go blind. Who is putting this nonsense forward as factual?

Harry Richman (Harry) is a singer songwriter who makes it big and leaves his friends behind only to get his comeuppance. Can ex-partner Joan Bennett (Dolores) forgive him?

The story is a bit boring and doesn't flow because chunks of the storyline have been edited out. Don't watch for that. See the film for 3 of the musical segments - the song "With You", the weird Alice in Wonderland section and the standout "Puttin' on the Ritz" which is without doubt the best version of the song put on film. This alone makes the film keeping onto as well as it being an interesting museum piece and time capsule with the film sets.
