This short and snappy crime drama about nightclub dancers plunges us into the action from scene one. Three elements give the movie its special flavor: Thelma Todd as an alluring but nasty vixen; Nancy Carroll as her alluring and kindhearted opposite; and the insertion of full blown song and dance sequences without which the movie would clock in at around 45 minutes! The songs and dances themselves are nothing special but pleasant enough. And it must be noted that after seeing George Murphy and Carroll trip the light fantastic you clearly understand why it was Astaire and Rogers who are remembered today. Murphy was physically more attractive than Astaire but heavy footed in comparison. And his singing voice was thin like Astaire's but there is no life in his delivery. It makes sense that Murphy eventually abandoned performing to become a politician. It does not make sense that Nancy Carroll's career had to end so soon. She is absolutely winning every moment she is on the screen. And poor Thelma Todd was murdered the year this film was released so we will never know what she might have done with her comic (and, as revealed here) dramatic talents.
