He's the CHAMP of Broadway but a CHUMP for a Blonde! Romance right off the front pages! A Beautiful girl's rise from nowhere to overnight fame! (Print Ad- Plattsburg Daily Republican, ((Plattsburg, NY)) 10 June 1933)
John Miljan is in studio records/casting call lists for the role of "Tucker," but he did not appear in the movie. Raymond Hatton was reported to be in the cast by Film Daily, but he was not seen either. See more »
Careful, Mike; careful! You are speaking of the lady I almost loved.
The dames *you've* almost loved would read from here to Chicago--laid end to end.

What a...quaint expression.

Interestingly enough, it has the same plot as "Chicago." A dame kills a Lothario who was getting a little too amorous with her, and her press agent has to spin the media and courts to get her off. A funny scene of a photographer shooting pictures of her holding a gun, and her desire to go into show business at the end to capitalize on the scandal would both be used in "Chicago" years later. Surprisingly funny, worth a rental, if you can find it; certainly worth catching on TMC. (There's also a 2003 French film called "Bon Voyage" which has a scene where a woman kills a man in her apartment, and calls her friend in the middle of the night to pick up the pieces.)
