I love this film.....not so much for the story which is pretty basic but for a two minute dance between George Raft, the ultimate gigolo and a young Carole Lombard. The use of Ravel's Bolero has been used many times from the ghastly Bo Derek film of the same name to the beautiful 1984 Olympic Gold Medal winning ice dance by Torvil and Dean. But this is the grandaddy of them all and it is sexy beyond belief. Granted, dance doubles were used in the long shots for the difficult lifts but it is very well done and there is enough of Raft and Lombard to retain authenticity. Raft was a dancer in another life so he had the moves and if Lombard was not a dancer, she does a damn good imitation. The plot of the film has been discussed in detail by the other reviewers so I will just call attention to the dance sequence which makes it all worthwhile.
