Dressed to Thrill was a brave but foredoomed attempt to transform Russian musical favorite Tutta Rolf into a Hollywood movie star. Rolf is cast in a dual role, as famed stage singer Nadia Petrova and humble dressmaker Colette DuBois. It hardly takes two reels before the two heroines' identities are switched when Colette impulsively decides to wear a gown created with Nadia in mind. Hero Bill Trent (Clive Brook) looks confused even after he's figured out which girl is which. A remake of a French film of the same name (also directed by Harry Lachman), Dressed to Thrill was adapted by Samson Rafaelson from a play by Albert Savoir.
