Even the rhinestones look fake when they sparkle.
While the story is on the simplistic side, it was a fun fish-out-of water scenario and I highly enjoyed the performances in this film. Jean Simmons plays a contained school teacher who takes a part-time job working as a secretary in a nightclub. It quickly becomes apparent that she's just as good for the club as the nightclub is good for her.
I especially enjoyed Paul Douglas in his fatherly role as nightclub owner and Simmons' protector. The chemistry between opposites Jean Simmons and Douglas' protégé, played by the very handsome and brooding Anthony Franciosa develops well throughout the film so when their lips meet the screen sizzles.
Great co-stars, very quirky and well developed. Also got a kick of out the subtle references and euphemisms for sex and virginity as Simmon's sexual experience or lack of it was contrasted with Franciosa's wealth in that area. It was made more than abundantly clear, because otherwise the audience just wouldn't have caught on??
Lastly just wanted to mention that the nightclub's design, atmosphere and musical numbers were well developed. Julie Smith smolders as the veteran lounge singer.
