(Dolly Macht Karrier) Dolly's Career top-bills the delightful Dolly Haas in the title role. It's a harmless little story about a starry-eyed chorus girl who hopes to become a big star and also keep her virtue, and of the various antagonists who try to prevent her from doing either. The film is highlighted by a number of elaborate dance sequences, gracefully performed by Haas and cleverly choreographed by Ernst Matray. In the largest male role, Alfred Abel does his usual overrated overacting, though audiences were satisfied to the point of applauding Abel upon his first entrance. Star Dolly Haas later emigrated to America, where she eventually forsook show business to marry New York Times caricaturist Al Hirschfield. Dolly Macht Karriere marked the directorial debut of Anatole Litwak (Litvak), who likewise relocated to the U.S., there to enjoy a long and rewarding Hollywood career.
