The pair take a recording of Tommy Taylor's band and make a a record with Mary doing the vocal. Throught an error, 10,000 pressings are made and released through the record company owned by J.P. O'Hara (Tim Ryan). Taylor (Jerry Cooper) has always refused to have a girl singer, and through his agent Herman Strohbach (Robert Kent)threatens to sue Jimmy.

Through a misunderstanding, Strohbach signs Polly Kane ('Irene Ryan'), O'Hara's wacky secretary.

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.
