In large measure Raoul Walsh‘s The Man I Love (1947) is about nightclub life, with a chunk of real shadiness tossed in.  Ida Lupino stars as a tough-minded but amiable club singer, who doesn’t care much about her job since her boss (Robert Alda) is a cocky heel who makes advances to her.  Alda ain’t the man she loves; really, the man she loves seems like a bore and is badly acted by Bruce Bennett.  Lupino’s scenes with him are the weakest in the movie.

Other scenes, however, such as those with Petey Brown (Lupino) and her family, are spunky and agreeable.  The movie in toto is agreeable, if without the greatest plot in the world.
