Trivia

Although Bing Crosby, Harry Barris and Al Rinker, as The Rhythm Boys, are heard on the soundtrack singing "Three Little Words", three African-American men are seen on the screen, supposedly doing the vocalizing, with megaphones disguising their lip movements so that there would not be a synchronization problem.

Not One of the Best

Typical Amos 'n Andy story-line has the boys trying to make a go of their "open-air" taxi business while they get caught up in a society hassle.

It involves driving musicians to a fancy party.

All the regular characters are here (or mentioned), including the famous Mystic Knights of the Sea.

The only film appearance of radio's long-running characters.

Guess the movie didn't make much money since there wasn't another. I've only heard bits and pieces of the radio show, but I have the entire TV series on DVD. The TV series is hysterical and anyone who thinks it's somehow racist, is nuts.

This movie, on the other hand is a whole different deal. Amos and Andy are white in black face. It's really odd to watch that these days.

Plus, it's just not a good film.
