When Joan Terry and Steve Dexter are shown hitting the night spots of Broadway, the stock-footage montage includes the outside of the Cotton Club - which had closed in 1940, four years before this film was made. See more »
Z grade PRC musical with Frances Langford should be more fun and hep than it is. I was sooooo disappointed. Boring scenes in a boardinghouse for girl starlets, some Iris Adrian wisecracks and the unusually handsome Craig Woods all lead us to one of the screen's most awful dance numbers in the final reel. And I really like awful dance numbers....eg: Pee Wee Dupree in ZIS BOOM BAH, or the spectacular opening from GUMNAAM.
Here in CAREER GIRL the final clumsy dance number is only worth seeing for the hilarious costume design: halter tops which are OK but.... white short pants with a black maple leaf patch on the crotch which makes the chorus girls look as though they are nude and are sporting the biggest bush of lower body pubic hair you have ever seen in a step line of high kicking girls. Yippee! Hilarious. Otherwise, a dirge.
