Comment
A multiway trist between the dancers and singers in a night club leads to murder. The film is notable for the big Busby Berkeley musical numbers including the strange ride a donkey to heaven number. The themes are very definately pre-code, but there are good performances from Kay Frances and Dolores Del Rio as the two female leads.
