One of the most popular and versatile actresses of all time, Claudette Colbert (Four Frightened People, It Happened One Night, Bluebeard’s Eighth Wife) dazzles audiences in the Pre-Code musical drama Torch Singer. When Sally Trent (Colbert) can no longer support her illegitimate child, she puts her daughter up for adoption and pursues a career as a torch singer. Under the name Mimi Benton, she soon climbs to fame as a sexy nightclub singer and attempts to find her daughter through a children’s radio show. Featuring rare performances of Colbert singing, this emotionally charged classic from directors Alexander Hall (Goin’ to Town) and George Somnes (Midnight Club) showcases the truly great talent of its star. Co-starring Ricardo Cortez (The Maltese Falcon) and David Manners (Dracula).
