FILM: Doll Face (1945, 80 min)
Burlesque queen “Doll Face” Carroll (Vivian Blaine) is dismissed from an audition for a legitimate Broadway show because she lacks culture. Her boss/manager decides that she can get both culture and plenty of publicity by writing her autobiography. He hires a ghost writer to do all the work, but doesn't count on the possibility that she and her collaborator might have more than a book on their minds. Adapted from Gypsy Rose Lee’s 1943 play, “The Naked Genius,” the film also features Carmen Miranda and Perry Como.
