Wonder Bar-1934

Warner Brothers of the 1930s was known for gritty crime dramas and for over the top musicals. Here we have a schizophrenic musical crime drama. Couldn't tell it from the ad, though, which pushes it as another Busby Berkeley-style musical, even though it's not directed by Berkeley. Too much text in too many different sizes and fonts doesn't help. A nice list of stars but with no one really highlighted here as THE star! A terrible ad all around. I'm staying home.
