STARRING ROSA by Otto Coontz


Email this review


A would-be star finds success in unexpected quarters when Rosa, a pig, moves to New York to pursue a show-biz career and takes a waitress job when she can't get one in show biz. Rosa is fired for her clumsy service, but as the customers miss her singing and dancing she is hired back as an entertainer. Soon Rosa is a cafe hit, ""the hottest act in town."" But the plot is stale, and Coontz's whipped-up gray pictures fail to freshen it. They seem to be full of action, but there's really nothing going on.
