The real highlight of this film is the great pop standard "You're My Thrill" by Sidney Clare and Jay Gorney. It's haunting refrain is initially sung by Lya Lys, playing a pampered mistress. Later on the refrain swells in the background while Claire Trevor and Harvey Stephens are night-clubbing. The story and direction are entertaining, but James Dunn's lead character is abrasive and just too cock sure of himself to sit back and enjoy. Although the story roots for Claire and Jimmy's romance -- the prospect of Claire and the charming Harvey Stephens character together is more appealing. Well done, but nothing out of the ordinary.
