Movie Info

To distance herself from her strict Amish family, naïve Rachel Schpitendavel (Britt Ekland) escapes to New York City to become a dancer. While Rachel's dances based on Biblical stories are too innocent for Minsky's Burlesque House, club-owner Billy Minsky (Elliott Gould) plans on using Rachel's routine to humiliate critics of his business. But trouble arises when partners in a comedy duo (Jason Robards, Norman Wisdom) compete for Rachel's affections.

    Fizzes and crackles with energy, but it's not without gravitas. Great fun!

    A very lovingly made homage to both vaudeville and burlesque. Not overly glamorized into the typical slapsticky chuckle-fest that you might expect. While there is some of THAT...there is also a bit of the seedy and slightly dark underbelly of "the business" thrown into the mis, but done so in a way that doesn't make it feel gratuitous. The acting is good, especially Britt Ekland who gives a GREAT performance. Some of the cinematograpy and editing are genious and the costumes and set designs are SPOT ON. All of these things REALLY serve to convey the look and feel of the era and make what could easily have been just another rambunctious romp through the "Roaring 20's" look and feel (at times) more like archival footage brought to life.
