| Raft and Lombard Dancing the Bolero!
In "Bolero," George Raft is in the limelight as part of a dancing duo. This is his passion and his life. But it all comes to a head when his partner wants more. She's the jealous type anyway. Any attention he gives to another woman, she flies off the handle. She's temperamental and fiery. Enter Carole Lombard. When his partner gives him more grief than she's worth, he drops her and takes Carole as his partner and eventual love interest. This early drama is helped by the stars' chemistry, as they make a very intense and sensual couple. But his fame and prosperity are hampered by his health and by his ex-partner's jealousies. This is a very good yet not very well-known film. In my experience, I have noticed an attribute of some of the early 1930s films: they had very abrupt endings. In some cases, they didn't know exactly how or when to end well, and others ended on the pinnacle of drama, when there was nothing further to elaborate on, where less is more. "Bolero" is one of those. And, that dramatic ending is what gives this film another plus. Discover "Bolero" today, if you can and see Raft and Lombard in action.
