Lady of Burlesque (1943)

Academy Awards, USA 1944

Best Music, Scoring of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture
Arthur Lange

United Artists
Directed by William A. Wellman
My rating: 2.5 stars out of 4

Police investigate a series of murders backstage at a NYC burlesque show. Star Barbara Stanwyck and her wannabe boyfriend Michael O'Shea are just two of the possible suspects in the large cast. A passable whodunnit with some lively dialogue and entertaining classic burlesque and old vaudeville interludes.
