Very stylish and a little confusing
This film is musically great with a couple of numbers by Ella Fitzgerald. However, this is not anything close to a musical. Rather it is a 20’s gangster tale that involves Pete Kelly (Jack Webb) and his band. For those of you who remember Dragnet, Webb’s narration might have you thinking of Dragnet just a little too much. Webb also directed this film, and he did a great job of giving it a real 20’s feel. You don’t feel like you’re looking at a bunch of people from the 50’s dressed up for a 20’s costume party.

The only thing bad I can say about it is I had a hard time figuring out Pete Kelly’s motivation. A person close to him is killed, and he is ready to give in to the gangster responsible and forget the whole thing ever happened. He finds out another person he barely knows has been killed by the same gangster and he’s ready for war. He tosses an eager and beautiful Janet Leigh out of his room in one scene, and in the next scene he’s overjoyed to see her to the point of wanting to marry her. The clinical acting style that worked so well for Webb in Dragnet just left me a little confused here. Still, overall, I would recommend it.

Stiff drama highlighted by great musical performances
This could just as easily be titled ‘Joe Friday’s Blues’! Webb still has the cop demeanor in this rather routine story of a blues band leader during the 20s. Lord, even the narration is reminiscent of Dragnet. Now, having said all that, how can you not like a movie with a supporting cast of Marvin, Milner, Divine, Leigh, Lee, O’brian, and Fitzgerald? The musical numbers are sensational, and one can detect real admiration on Webb’s face when he watches Lee and Ella perform; accordingly, this was Webb’s labor of love. Watch for Andy Divine in a role unlike any you’ve seen him in before.
