Covering a quarter-century of American 'syncopated" music (Ragtime, Jazz, Swing, Blues, Boogie Woogie)from prior to WWI through prohibition, the stock-market crash, the depression and the outbreak of WWII. A romance between singer Kit Latimer, from New Orleans, and Johnny Schumacher, in which they share and argue over musical ideas ensues. Prior to the making of the film RKO held a contest for the readers of 'The Saturday Evening Post" to vote on the musicians to make up the All-American Dance Band featured in the film; the magazine's readers chose, in the above-the-title listing: Charlie Barnet, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Jack Jenney. Gene Krupa, Alvino Rey, Joe Venuti, and singer Connee Boswell. Written by

I am very interested in finding the name of young Reggie/later Rex. There is no mention of him in the credits.
Does anyone have that information? I have been researching and I come up with a name of Jack Thompson, not at all sure that is correct.
I have been on line with some of the "Black or Negro Acting History Books" There was a blurb about Jack Thompson tucked in a lot of information. I have seen this young man before and wondered what ever became of him and what else had he done in the 1940's.
I came upon this movie quite by accident and did not view the beginning I would like to secure a schedule of some sort. I enjoyed (what I saw of it)Syncopation and want to start at the beginning. I am a Jazz lover
