Roseland

There is romance to the notion that our buildings will outlast us, that our passions will be seen and remembered within the walls while we go on our way to our just desserts. That is the emotional underpinning of Roseland, a clean, well-lighted ballroom of New York's West Side.

There is romance to the notion that our buildings will outlast us, that our passions will be seen and remembered within the walls while we go on our way to our just desserts. That is the emotional underpinning of Roseland, a clean, well-lighted ballroom of New York’s West Side.

Standout is Lilia Skala, playing an elderly German woman with the bearing of Bismarck, who confides to her sleepy Peabody (a Roseland dance) partner, David Thomas, that she has had to do cleaning and work as a cook at Schrafft’s to pay her way.

Second tale of a gigolo, nicely crafted by Christopher Walken, is of his failure to separate himself from Joan Copeland, excellent in her portrayal of a lonely and dying woman now buying what her faded glamor once commanded.
