Paul Fejos


USA 1929
89 min

Musical, gangster ballads, detective novel. The story is about a dynamic dancer who wants to save a love; showgirls, who oscillate between emotion and career; prohibition winners, who wear themselves down in underworld feuds; investigators who gamble with their orientation in the milieu of appearance. None of them are much good as heroes. The brilliant equipment and the refined camera work are too engaging.
