Those Who Dance is a 1930 American Pre-Code crime film produced and distributed by Warner Bros., directed by William Beaudine, and starring Monte Blue, Lila Lee, William "Stage" Boyd and Betty Compson. It is a remake of the 1924 silent film Those Who Dance starring Bessie Love and Blanche Sweet.[1] The story, written by George Kibbe Turner, was based on events which actually took place among gangsters in Chicago.


Monte Blue plays as a police detective who is after a famous gangster (played by William Boyd). He disguises himself and lives in the very house of the famous gangster by pretending he is an out-of-town gangster who has just murdered someone. He pretends he is the sweetheart of an innocent girl (played by Lila Lee) who suspects her brother has been framed for murder by Monte Blue. Blue's moll, played by Betty Compson, is also in on the conspiracy as she had become fed up with his cheating, lying and brutal treatment. The life of Lee's brother, who has been sentenced to death in the electric chair, depends on them getting evidence against Boyd.

Foreign-language versions

Foreign-language versions were made in Spanish (Los Que Danzan), German The Dance Goes On (Der Tanz geht weiter) and French (Contre-Enquête). They are all apparently lost.[citation needed]

Pre-Code material

The film contains a lot of Pre-Code material. Some examples include: Lila Lee's character is called "a professional virgin". Two unmarried couples live together, with the unspoken understanding that this is not true love forever, just a temporary situation for the sake of convenient sex for all parties concerned and hot meals on the table for the men as long as the situation lasts. There is also a gay reference about a man being "that way" about Tim Brady (played by William Janney), etc.


The complete film survives in 16 mm. It was remastered in this format by Associated Artists Productions in 1956 and included in a package of vintage feature films syndicated to television stations. A 16 mm print is housed at the Wisconsin Center for Film & Theater Research.[2] Another print exists at the Library of Congress.[3]
