Douglas Fairbanks Jr.,
There are about ten acts from the 1940's that are well filmed. It was a
pleasure seeing Nat King Cole and Moms Mabley so young. The rotund
Patterson and Jackson steal the show with their crooning, dancing and
imitation of the Four Inkspots. The Clark Brothers, a terrific tap
dancing team, also bring the applause meter to a ten. The other acts
aren't great, but the music is pleasant and nicely represents the Swing
sound in the late 1940's. The beat occasionally sounds like early rock
and roll. The line of dancing girls at the end is amusing to watch.
About ten minutes of the hour is taken up with a poorly photographed
story of a magician chased by the police for making a girl disappear.
Butterfly McQueen appears in this This is on a 20 pack of musicals from
Mill Creek which I picked up for $2.50. So far I've watched three:
"Killer Diller," "All American Coed" and "Hi Diddle Diddle" and each is
worth the price of admission.
