Movie Info

In this film, Ida Lupino takes a job as a singer in Robert Alda's seedy Santa Monica nitery. Lupino ignores Alda's advances to cultivate a romance with pianist Bruce Bennett. Alda uses his connections with the Mob to break up the relationship -- and, hopefully, to break Bennett into pieces.

Fascinating mix of romantic soap opera, jazz musical and film noir motifs.

... a refreshingly mature film rich with stories of frustrated lives, unrequited loves and tough times just getting by in the world without selling your soul.

Except for Ida Lupino's feisty performance as a tortured woman in love who tries to help her family, the acting was weak.
