Storyline

It's lights out at a young women's dormitory. One of the residents sneaks in late after everyone else has gone to bed. It's because after she and her date left the theater, they decided to extend the evening at the Melody Club. Through flashbacks of the evening, she tells another one of the now awakened girls about their time at the Melody Club. The acts included a Russian troupe performing a comedy routine with a sweet ending, Thelma White doing a song and dance number with a backup chorus of dancers, and the headliner, Ginger Rogers, singing a couple of songs. But she also tells of two men who were at the club having dinner with their dates, and the scam they pulled in trying to stiff the waiter as they had no money to pay their bill. Written by Huggo

Teenaged Ginger

Ginger Rogers made 3 shorts in 1929 and 1930 before breaking into features in 1930's Young Man of Manhattan with Claudette Colbert, Charlie Ruggles, and Norman Foster. This was the last of those short films. She stars as herself in a nightclub revue. She sings two forgettable songs. Thelma White leads the chorus of hoofers. Ruth Hamilton is the Gracie Allen-like college girl. The guy who plays Elmer looks familiar but I can't place him. Of interest only because of Rogers, who looks very strange with her dark hair and pre-Hollywood eye brows. She has plent of zip, and it's a chance to see Rogers as she was when she landed in Hollywood in 1929. She's a raw talent here with loads of potential--as the world was soon to see.
