Watch Murder at the Vanities - Alternative Versions.
A Murder investigation goes on back stage while The Vanities, on its
opening night, plays on to an unknowing audience. Odd combination of
musical and murder mystery is worth a look for its cast, its terrific
production numbers, and the sheer novelty of the film.
Gertrude Michael has the showy role of a bitchy actress intent on
stopping the marriage between the show's stars, Kitty Carlisle and Carl
Brisson, as well as starring in the infamous "Sweet Marijuana" number
(which was also on a 70s Bette Midler album). So while the chorus girls
shuffle around backstage, bumbling detective Victor McLaglen ogles the
girls while he tries to solve the backstage murder of an unknown woman
whose body is found on a catwalk above the stage.
We quickly learn that the maid (Dorothy Stickney) loves Brisson from
afar, that the wardrobe lady (Jessie Ralph) is Brisson's mother, and
that the stage manager (Jack Oakie) butts into everything. Lots of
plots twists among the musical numbers. The show's best-known song is
"Cocktails for Two" sung by Brisson and Carlisle. They also sing "Live
and Love Tonight" on a tropical isle surrounded by showgirls waving
feather fans to simulate the ocean. Carlisle also sings the haunting
"Where Do They Come From?" Gertrude Michael sings the infamous "Sweet
Marijuana." And there's a weird rhapsody that erupts into a Harlem
specialty number featuring Duke Ellington!
Some terrific acting here, especially Gertrude Michael and Dorothy
Stickney. Kitty Carlisle is quite good as well. Brisson, Oakie, and
McLaglen are all solid.
Charles Middleton plays Homer, Toby Wing plays Nancy, Donald Meek plays
the doctor, Gail Patrick plays the unknown woman, and see if you can
spot Ann Sheridan, Alan Ladd and Lucille Ball among the chorus members.
