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

One of the problems in doing this screen version of the hit radio series was that Freeman F. Gosden
and Charles J. Correll
did multiple characters on the radio program. The problem was minimized by avoiding speaking parts for the recurring characters from the radio program. The most popular character from the series, Kingfish, voiced by Freeman Gosden (in addition to Amos) was played in this film by Russ Powell
