Movie Info

This thriller is considered innovative because it was filmed by a special camera crane designed by director Fefos. The camera could film at any angle and traveled at 600 feet per minute. This helped create some wonderful images of the Paradise Night Club, the scene of the film's action. Trouble ensues after the club's owner is murdered by a rival bootlegger. A beautiful dancer at the club witnesses the killing, but keeps quiet until he threatens her dancing partner and then kidnaps her. She is saved by the late club owner's lover who shoots the bootlegger. He dies freeing the dancer to marry her partner. The film includes the following songs "Broadway," "The Chicken or the Egg," "Hot Footin' It," "Hittin' the Ceiling," "Sing a Little Love Song."


Critic Reviews for Broadway

The highlight being the nightclub vaudeville Broadway number as the finale, which is shot in a primitive but arresting color.
