CONVENTION GIRL

Babe Laval manages a group of call girls in an Atlantic City hotel. Her boyfriend Bill runs a backroom gambling hall. Nephew Tommy is unemployed, looking to make a quick buck any way he can, and gets mixed up with racketeer Dan Higgins (Shemp Howard). When wealthy businessman Ward Hollister enlists Babe's help to sober up one of his executives, he becomes infatuated with her. Babe is torn between Ward and Bill, and the three become targets of Dan's and Tommy's blackmail scheme.

Shemp plays it straight in this vintage drama as a small time hood who resorts to extortion and attempted murder for money.



Filmed on location... "Drink in those nostalgic, amazing location shots of 1930s Atlantic City! The diving horse at Steel Pier, the rolling chairs, the big beaches, and the back room gambling."

A real curiosity piece. Plays almost like an exploitation flick at times, while at others it seems almost like a comical travelogue of Atlantic City (Dig that high divin' horse!) And Shemp as murderous conman? Yikes!

Not a good film, but worthwhile to see Shemp the actor as a murderer.
