Storyline

A member of a New York City vaudeville troupe inherits property in Las Vegas and, upon arrival, is thrown in jail for bringing livestock into Nevada without a license. THe livestock consists of a crate of pigeons---trained birds with which one of the girls does her variation of a fan dance. Upon release, they learn the property is a ramshackle building, but decide to make a nightclub out of it. Hitting the jackpot in one of the casinos provides the needed money...but many, many complications ensue. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

At least Dorsey Managed to Survive
11 July 2008 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Mostly a waste considering the musical talent involved. Wheeler was right-- the film is poorly done, with a lot of second-rate comedy acts, not the least of which is Wheeler himself. The opening scene presents a tracking-down-the-main-street shot of 1940's Las Vegas, so we do get a sketchy view of what glitter gulch was like in those early days. Also, the funky version of the three sisters' "Mary, Mary" is nicely staged and a pleasant surprise. But once Wheeler's unfunny shenanigans take over, the movie heads downhill. Of course, there's a look at the Dorsey band, but except for their "Song of India", the rest of the selections are pretty mediocre, not counting Sinatra's dreamy version of "I'll Never Smile Again". My favorite scene is where Regan and Moore stand before a cardboard backdrop and declare it a "beautiful view". I know, I'm being severe on a B-grade movie that was never intended to be much more than a showcase for the Dorsey band. But , in my view at least, it's a pretty poor showcase.
