The Helen Morgan Story

  • USA The Jazz Age (Arbeitstitel) (mehr)


Helen Morgan has beauty, talent, success. Yet they mean nothing to her without the love of Larry Maddox, the bootlegger who leads Helen on and drops her so often she finally hits bottom. Set in the roaring '20s, The Helen Morgan Story is also Maddox's story. In his fifth film, Paul Newman plays the mobster with slick assuredness. In her final movie, Ann Blyth portrays the troubled songstress (and Show Boat original cast member), with Gogi Grant performing vocals on signature Morgan tunes. (Verleiher-Text)
