Anything But Love
In Robert Cary’s homage to the Technicolor musicals of the 1950s, Isabel Rose stars as Billie Golden, a woman infatuated with the glamour of an era long past. Though she dreams of a lush life singing in glamorous nightclubs, in reality she is a waitress who also sings in a two-bit airport lounge. To make matters worse, her boss threatens to fire her since he can no longer afford to pay her and an accompanist. In the midst of this confusion, Billie runs into Greg (Cameron Bancroft), an old high school heartthrob who is now a successful corporate lawyer. Greg offers her almost everything she could ever desire, but when she meets Elliot (Andrew McCarthy), an arrogant musician who teaches her to play the piano, she is forced to make a difficult decision. Should she choose the security that Greg can give her, or the one thing he can’t?
