ALSO AT MOVIES OF DELRAY ON OCTOBER 19TH! Time and place of action — seaside town in the south of Russia; the 1920’s. This was the period of the New Economic Policy (NEP) which allowed private enterprise and trade and, as a result, shadyoperators and petty criminals flourished. The Golden Age Restaurant is their favorite haunt — here a young dancer, Rita, who appears under the name of Mademoiselle Margot, and her partner,Jacques, in point of fact Yashka, leader of a local gang of bandits, entertain a mixed public of “fast livers”. Helping Yashka with his ’jobs’ are his bandit cronies and his friend, Lyuska.
