CGiii Comment

Total and absolute rubbish.

The music stinks, the dances are chaotic and laughably bad...but, the final musical number is possibly the most offensive ever staged.

Regardless of when it was made - this is a showcase of talentlessness.

Beyond contempt.


The(ir) Blurb...

Harry and Inez are a dance team at the Wonder Bar. Inez loves Harry, but he is in love with Liane, the wife of a wealthy business man. Al Wonder and the conductor/singer Tommy are in love with Inez.
