Full movie description "Cafe Hostess":Jo (Ann Dvorak), a "percentage girl" at the notorious Club 46, is in despair. She can see no way out of the dreary and sordid routine of entertaining customers - called drinking and dancing in 1940 - and, at a signal from piano player Eddie Morgan (Douglas Fowley), rolling them for their money. Eddie, besides being brutal to her and spending all her money, is also carrying on an affair with another girl. Jo's only friend is Annie (Wynne Gibson), a former actress but now a drink-sodden derelict. Annie keeps to herself the knowledge that it was Eddie who threw the knife that killed a petty racketeer who was too attentive to Jo. Sailor Dan Walters (Preston Foster) and two of his pals arrive from a cruise and his good nature delights Joe, but at a wink from Eddie, Jo attempts to steal his money. Dan swallows his disillusionment and returns to the cafe, and he and Jo enjoy a day-long picnic together. She accepts his marriage proposal and go to an up-state town where he has a job waiting. ...
Reviews of the Cafe Hostess"Cafe Hostess" (1940) is mostly hardboiled crime drama encasing a romantic angle. Douglas Fowley owns a club with some class, but it's still a gyp joint and the hostesses, including Ann Dvorak, clip the patrons, including using pickpocket skills. Fowley is worse. He stages a fight to cover up his murder of a potential police informant for his nefarious other robberies. Dvorak wants out of Fowley's embrace. Enter seaman Preston Foster accompanied by Bruce Bennett and Eddie Acuff. Things move very fast in this 65-minute b-movie as Foster sees through Dvorak's hard shell and aims to rescue her, the obstacle being Fowley who has a hold on her. It's not "Grand Hotel" but a number of side characters move in and out of the club, holding our interest. The film looks good and plays quite modern and spiffy, while spinning out familiar story lines.
