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."

This Monogram flick from 1946 is more than just a Stooges flick,and is of considerable historical interest for lovers of pre-rock era pop music because it contains performances by Gale Storm, Phil Regan, Connee Boswell, and Louis Jordan and his Tympany Five.
Gale Storm shows what a capable singer she was well before her vocal talents were "discovered" by the Dot label during the run of her TV show in the 1950s. And one is reminded of what a great, unjustly neglected singer Connee Boswell was. Her brief performance of Stormy Weather at the picture's end has such vocal strength and authority that it is hard to believe she was confined to a wheelchair (discretely camouflaged in the musical numbers).
As to the rest of the picture, well yes, it basically does rely on The Stooges and Ed Brophy for the rest of its entertainment value. And you either like The Stooges or you don't...I happen to like them, so although this picture is no great shakes, I found it a pleasant time filler.
