A fast-moving and funny film, THE HALF-NAKED TRUTH follows the career of Tracy from carnival barker to top show biz agent. Part of his success is due to the fiery Velez, a carnival cooch dancer whom he turns into an overnight celebrity. There's a great scene with Tracy blackmailing Morgan
(better known as the title character from THE WIZARD OF OZ) with a compromising photograph of Velez and Morgan. The action is fast-paced and furious. The story is a little far-fetched, but the effect is plenty of good fun.
