Storyline

June never leaves her apartment, which has a view of an advertising sign of a knight in shining armor. She is two weeks behind in her rent and believes that if she leaves the apartment, the landlord will never let her back in. The only way she gets food is when her friend, singer Earlayne Schools, brings it to her. One evening June sees Hal, a tap-dancing sign painter, painting over her knight. She explains her predicament, and he does his best to help her out. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

Knight is Young, The (1938)

*** (out of 4)

Pretty good musical stars Hal LeRoy but the main attraction is seeing a young June Allyson getting her start. She plays a wannabe tap dancer who refuses to leave her apartment because she fears her landlord will lock her out since she doesn't have the rent. She spends her time talking to a large billboard across from her window, which includes Sir Galahad. Yes, she speaks to a billboard, which leads to a few musical numbers that are actually pretty good. This Vitaphone short isn't anything too special but Allyson is very lovely and does a fine job here. LeRoy isn't too bad either. On a technical level there's really nothing too special but this does serve as a good time killer.
