Low-key musical about a burlesque dancer (Joan Crawford) who tries to go legit after she’s been raided for the last time by the police. Clark Gable is the theatrical impresario who originally gives her the “brush-off” but eventually decides to hire her and then romance her. One of the many films the two stars made in the thirties, this one isn’t irresistible but it does feature Fred Astaire‘s film debut.
