Look Out Sister (1947)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Louis Jordan, playing himself, a Jazz musician who is constantly on the road and finally has a breakdown. He's sent to a hospital for some rest and this is where he meets a young boy and they start talking about cowboys. From here we are transferred to a cowboy ranch that Jordan visits and soon he's in a battle over the land.

LOOK OUT SISTER isn't a masterpiece or any sort of great movie so one really shouldn't come into it expecting that. With that said, if you're a fan of Jordan's music then this is pretty much a must- see as there's no question that the music is terrific and there's plenty of it.

The film clocks in at just 63-minutes and there are probably just five-minutes where there's not some sort of music going on. The film manages to have a lot of fun with the cowboy setting and there are many musical numbers where Jordan is wearing the cowboy gear that you'd typically expect to see from John Wayne.

There are just around a dozen different musical numbers and I must say that I thought most of them were quite good. The side story dealing with the cowboy stuff doesn't add or take away any of the entertainment. The film isn't the best made that you're going to see but the music is great and that makes the film worth watching.
