Dance Hall

     Singer Lili Brown (Landis) is attracted to dance hall manager and Casanova Duke McKay (Romero) till she realizes he does that to all the girls. At that point Duke has no chance so as a nice guy, Duke sets her up with composer Joe Brooks who end up falling in love with each other.  "If you enjoyed the Glenn Miller film ORCHESTRA WIVES, you will likely enjoy DANCE HALL too, for they both have that very mellow early 1940's ambiance of an America now long vanished".

* Features:
     some great swing dancing by Dean Collins and Jewel McGowen as well as what may be their only speaking roles on film - "Shoot the torso to me, Toots!" and "What are you, a chiropractor, anyway?" This is a hard to find video. Ceasar Romero and Carol Landis swing dance together in this film as well.
