Dance Hall Racket (From The Vault)
The new week begins with a From The Vault movie review, and the movie in question is Dance Hall Racket starring Lenny Bruce and Timothy Farrell.
- This was the only film role Lenny Bruce had in his all too brief career, not that his stand-up career made him endearing to the main stream
- The movie is short, about an hour long, and is heavily stretched out, but all the subplots and additional characters that don't really matter to the main story, help make things feel bigger
- The acting ranges from mediocre to terrible
- Timothy Farrell played the character of Umberto Scalli in two other films, 1949's The Devil's Sleep & 1951's Racket Girls
