Storyline

Ozzie Norton and his band, featuring Betty Blake of Brooklyn, prepare for the opening of the College Club, a nightclub near the campus of Lambeth Technological . On opening night, Minnie Lambeth Sparr, daughter of the college founder, descends with Professor Bailey, the sheriff and Harriet Hale, daughter of Dr. Hale, president of the school. The band and all persons connected are arrested under an old statute. Harriet, against the move, arranges for their release. Betty, Ozzie and the band picket the college in jive fashion.

Ozzie & Harriet before David & Ricky
15 March 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Okay, I tuned in to see the 1950's favorite white bread couple before they hit the big time. Not surprisingly, Ozzie is his usual low-key amiable self, while Harriet warbles a few tunes and shows some spunk as a put-upon secretary. The plot's a familiar one from the time— a hep-cat swing band tries to loosen up the college fuddy-duddies led by an impressively uptight Kathleen Howard. Keeler injects some spark with her shapely toe-tapping, but Ozzie's band gets little solo time, and truth be told, he was wise to go into radio sit-com. (Under that easy-going exterior was a really shrewd businessman as his years of radio & TV production demonstrate.)

The most memorable part may be a really early look at television and a receiver set I wish we saw more of— both real curiosities that the movie surprisingly makes very little of. At some 60-minutes and with Keeler as the only 'name' star, the movie's nothing more than a pleasant little programmer that I suspect Columbia used to demote Keeler after her A-picture career—she made no more for some 30-years. All in all, it's the kind of material Rooney and Garland could explode the screen with; at the same time, this version manages a mild 'pop'.
