Swing your lady trailer
Swing Your Lady is a 1938 country musical comedy film directed by Ray Enright, starring Humphrey Bogart, and featuring Ronald Reagan.
Bogart was apparently becoming very disenchanted with the film roles that the Warner Brothers studios were offering him at this stage of his career; the following year he appeared in his only horror/sci-fi film, The Return of Doctor X, and these were two roles he never liked talking about when he became a major film star several years later; he considered his performance in Swing Your Lady the worst of his career. Swing Your Lady was listed in the 1978 book The Fifty Worst Films of All Time.
Promoter Ed Hatch comes to the Ozarks with his slow-witted wrestler Joe Skopapoulos whom he pits against a hillbilly Amazon blacksmith, Sadie Horn. Joe falls in love with her and won't fight, at least not until Sadie's beau, Noah, shows up.
