This is one of those movies where there is a very clear episodic setup and then the movie marches through that setup. In this case, it works well, giving all major players their turn in the spotlight. I particularly enjoyed Lana Turner’s story and found her shrieking breakdown to be mesmerizing, though not super realistic.
Cost: $2.99 through Google Play, part of Filmspotting’s Minnelli marathon.
