Bolero Overview:

Bolero (1934) was a Drama - Musical Film directed by Wesley Ruggles and Mitchell Leisen .


George Raft first made his mark in this drama about an obsessive dancer who rises to the top. Driven by the desire to leave the seedy places in which he performs for sophisticated Paris revues, the dancer works relentlessly to pursue his dream and gets his chance to introduce a new dance craze. His disdain for his colleagues changes when he meets Lombard. Look sharp for the rare chance to see fan-dancer Rand do her stuff.
