  1. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Wonder Bar

  2. MarcH's rating of the film Wonder Bar

    Hands down my favorite pre-Code. The most subversive and disturbing musical of the decade...also a technical delight, with its special effects-laden Busby Berkeley numbers and nearly real-time script. Mirrors stretch chorus lines into infinity, angelic Jolson rides a donkey across a bridge to sprawling Darkie Heaven, Ricardo Cortez takes a whip to Delores Del Rio, and dowagers flirt with horny gigolos. A must.
