One doesn't expect much from a Monogram movie, and Hot Rhythm is no exception. However, those of us who enjoyed Irene Ryan as "Granny" on The Beverly Hillbillies TV series will get a kick out of seeing Ryan in her younger days in a different role. She plays a goofy (a la Gracie Allen) secretary to her boss, played by her real-life husband Tim Ryan, who's the head of a radio jingle production company. And movie buffs may not recognize silent-movie comedian Harry Langdon in one of his final roles before his death. An OK film for late night bouts of insomnia.
