In this 100% FICTIONAL film, in which no one plays "Self",Carol Lawrence (Gale Storm), an aspiring singer, goes to a new night club owned by Danny Warren (Phil Regan), whose father Daniel Warren (Russell Hicks (I)') doesn't approve of the club and wants Danny to join him in the family business. Carol is suspected of being a process server and is thrown out of the club. An extremely long arm of coincidence leads her to the elder Warren's office and he hires her as a process server. She returns but gets a singing job this time so foregoes serving the cease-and-desist notice. The Three Stooges are on hand as waiters and Connee Boswell, Louis Jordan, Will Osborne and Mary Treen provide the music and songs in addition to Gale Storm on "Oh, Buddy" and "On the Sunny Side of the Street."

Back when they first came to Hollywood, the Three Stooges were known as Ted Healy's Three Stooges and were his second bananas in his films. The boys tired of that and went from MGM to Columbia where the rest is history. Yet in Swing Parade Of 1946 they are functioning as Edward Brophy's stooges in the same manner they did for Healy.
The guys are dishwashers who later become waiters when there is a shortage and Brophy is in charge of the food. They work in a restaurant nightclub that's owned by Phil Regan who's a rich kid and whose father Russell Hicks wants him not involved in show business. In fact he's trying to shut his son down by hook or crook. Gale Storm is an aspiring singer looking for a break.
This rather threadbare plot is the hook to hang some musical numbers by Connee Boswell and orchestra leaders Will Bradley and Will Jordan and of course Regan and Storm. Not to mention the usual Stooge antics with the slow burning Brophy.
Harry Cohn over at Columbia where the 3 Stooges normally worked and worked on time and under budget must have owed something to Sam Katzman at Monogram. Maybe he lost their services in a poker game. I can't figure out why they were working at Monogram for a single film.
Swing Parade Of 1946 is pleasant enough, nothing outstanding about it.
