Storyline

Hollywood's famous Cocoanut Grove nightclub stages a Star Night-only musical revue in which many Hollywood actors attend. Staged is the operative word. Entertainers include Ted Fio Roit and his orchestra, Eduardo Durant's Tango Band, and the Fancho & Marco Sunkist Beauties. Leo Carrillo acted as the Master of Ceremonies, and introduces a galaxy of stars from their tables. Those higher on the 1935 pecking order, Mary Pickford, Jack Oakie, Arline Judge, Bing Crosby and Gary Cooper, come to the microphone and do a bit...mostly chit-chatting bits.

Gary Cooper and Richard Cromwell
19 January 2008 | by (California, U.S.) – See all my reviews

One of the most interesting things about this Technicolor short is that Gary Cooper and Richard Cromwell, co-stars in "Lives of a Bengal Lancer," and both looking ravishingly handsome, appear to be on a date with one another. There have long been rumors that Cromwell, well-known to be gay, had a fling with Cooper at exactly the time this short was made. The two "bachelors" certainly look extremely happy while sharing a table together.

Cooper's relationship (in the late twenties) with another boyish-looking, openly-gay actor named Anderson Lawler (they shared a house and were termed "best friends" by movie columnists), is well-documented in the fascinating book "Behind the Screen - How Gays and Lesbians shaped Hollywood 1910 - 1969" by William J. Mann.
