Silly movie that uses the "ten cents a dance" racket as a background for criminal action. Terry is a detective who finds out gangsters are hustling poor dance-hall girls. One of the girls, Wells (who later changed her name to Julie Bishop), is as pure as freshly fallen snow, and a romance
ensues. Terry breaks the gangsters' hold on the women and all is righted. The film was quickly ground out to capitalize on Warners' MARKED WOMAN, a much better film dealing with gangsters and their abuses of women in small-time bars. This drama is rife with illogical scenes and characters who
refer to events that have yet to occur. At one point a gangster picks up a telephone, and, without benefit of dialing or operator assistance, he is magically in touch with his boss. The film is full of continuity problems as well, a reflection of its cheap production. Hayworth, who had just
finished a leading role in THE GAME THAT KILLS, somehow was relegated to this trash in a supporting role.
