The worst night of entertainment I ever knew. This silly charade of an Amish girl going to the stage to strip tease is sheer nonsense. Who the hell writes this stuff?
Comedy directed by no less than The Exorcist director William Friedkin.
This film is purely all about vaudeville as it shows scene after scene of the old acts on stage. It goes back once and a while to normal dialog and people, but its all about stage acts.
Obviously from the title these folks are doing something that the police do not like. They raid Minskys sooner or later don't they? Has lots of veteran, and I do mean old veteran actors like Bert Lahr (the cowardly lion in The Wizard of Oz).
Cinematography is very well done. This is one crazy film and I mean that in the worst, uncomplimentary way.
