Atlantic City is a 1944 American musical romance directed by Ray McCarey and starring Constance Moore. The film concerns the formative years of Atlantic City, New Jersey. Vaudeville acts are re-created in the story of how Atlantic City became a famous resort. The supporting cast features Louis Armstrong and Dorothy Dandridge. The film was reissued in 1950 under the title Atlantic City Honeymoon.[1]

Plot[edit]

In 1915, Atlantic City is a sleepy seaside resort, but Brad Taylor, son of a small hotel and vaudeville house proprietor, has big plans: he thinks it can be "the playground of the world." Brad's wheeling and dealing proves remarkably successful in attracting big enterprises and big shows, but brings him little success in personal relationships. Full of nostalgic songs and acts, some with the original artists.

Cast[edit]

Stanley Brown, playing a character named Brad Taylor, is listed in the opening credits as Brad Taylor, and continued to use this name in all subsequent films.
