A lost art
12 January 2007 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

GARDEN is one of those forgotten "B" undercard films that has found new life on TCM. Pat O'Brien and a very young John Payne cross swords as a prickly nightclub manager and a struggling band leader, respectively. The plot is incidental, and involves Payne and his band traveling from NYC to play in O'Brien's popular L.A. club, only to find they are being swindled by O'Brien. The story is not to be taken seriously, and the film largely exists for a lot of big band era music, with some swing numbers thrown n, although no black players appear that I recall. Payne looks and sounds great, and is ably supported by a marvelous actress, completely forgotten today, named Margaret Lindsay and of course the cantankerous, fast-talking O'Brien. Pop-eyed, nonsense-spouting Jerry Colona is along for the ride. The novelty number, "Girlfriend of the Whirling Dervish," better known today thanks to a Looney Tunes cartoon, made its debut here.
