Three interlocking stories set in New York Citys legendary Roseland dance palace make up this charming film, the third to be shot by Merchant Ivory Productions in America. In the first segment, The Waltz, Teresa Wright is a widow who comes to the Roseland in order to sustain the memory of her late husband, but meets Stan (Lou Jacobi), a man who offers her an opportunity for happiness in the present. In The Hustle, Christopher Walken stars as a gigolo with three women in his life, all of whom depend on him for different degrees of romance and companionship. In the final segment, The Peabody, an older Viennese woman (Lilia Skala) sets out to win a dance competition despite warnings that it could imperil her health. Ruth Prawer Jhabvalas understated screenplay delivers an uncharacteristic bit of sentiment not present in other Merchant Ivory efforts.

The plotline is good but the copy of the tape is second-rate. No pauses or interruptons of story though so O.K.!Published on April 22, 2013 by Allison Burko
