The Slump Is Over

The Slump Is Over

A Feature film by Robert Siodmak

Produced by Nero-Film

Release in France : 04/10/1934

    Synopsis

    Depression-era, in the French bourgeoisie. The trials and tribulations of a young and impoverished theatrical troupe. Recently fired by their temperamental leading lady, the actors defiantly draw up plans to put on a show themselves. To raise the necessary funds and obtain props, costumes, electrical supplies and the like, the girls in the troupe adopt the tactics of Warner Bros. golddiggers, targeting a number of middle-class businessmen and shopkeepers as their pigeons. As a result, the film's "Big show" finale isn't nearly as entertaining as the various methods adopted to get that show on stage.
