Description by

Look out, Jake Luva. That sinuous moll cuddling up to you on the dance floor isn't the floozy she seems. She's Bonnie Jordan, ex-society girl and current undercover reporter, investigating a murder that has your fingerprints all over it. She has what it takes, all right - to take you and your crime empire down.

As Bonnie and Jake, Joan Crawford and Clark Gable exude plenty of pre-Code sensuality in their first screen teaming. Gable is fifth-billed, but the moment he and Crawford go into a clinch, there is no question who in the film could match her star power. Crawford and Gable went on to make seven more films together. And each smoldered with the red-hot chemistry originally sparked in Dance, Fools, Dance.

Product Description:

An interesting early appearance by Gable as a bootlegger tangled up with spoiled rich girl turned reporter Crawford, who poses as a dancer in a nightclub. Depression-era potboiler enlivened with pre-Code violence and naughty glimpses of Crawford in her undies.

Plot Synopsis:

Bonnie is a spoiled, young socialite who must face the real world when her wealthy father has a heart attack during the stock market crash and the family loses its fortune. She rejects marrying her boyfriend Bob because she thinks he's doing it out of pity. Instead, she takes a job as a newspaper reporter. Bonnie's brother Rodney opts for a less legitimate route; he works as a bootlegger for Jake, a notorious gangster.
When a rival gang of hooch peddlers are gunned down by Jake's boys, Rodney leaks information about it to Ben, a reporter at his sister's newspaper. Threatened with his own life by Jake, Rodney is forced to kill Ben for writing the story. Bonnie's editor assigns her to the story and she goes undercover to crack the case. She poses as a dancer in a nightclub frequented by Jake to get close to him. Only then does she learn about her brother's role in the messy affair... and Rodney must pay a price for working on the wrong side of the law.
