Storyline

Professional gambler The Duke (Dots Johnson) attempts to cheat Handsome Harry Hansom (Monte Hawley), who owns a successful Harlem nightclub, out of his club and his contract with his lead singer and girlfriend Tall, Tan, and Terrific (Francine Everett). This leads to a murder that is solved by club comic Mantan Moreland and club photographer Butterbeans (Barbara Bradford). But the plot takes little screen time, most of which is devoted to stage acts at the nightclub. Written by Gary Imhoff, gary@dcwatch.com

A delightful fast-pace movie this is starring the leading man and lady of Black Cinema, Monte Hawley and Francine Everett, two familiar and beloved faces of Black Cinema. The movie involved around a nightclub owner and his gambling problem which lands him in trouble for a crime he didn't commit and he loses his club and girl but all is solved and through it all wonderful entertainment. The girl band, Francine Everett's singing, The Two Fat Men, Myra Johnson, Edna Mae Harris, Mantan Moreland and the chorus girls entertained and keep the movie going. Handsome Dots Johnson is quite an actor along with Rudy Toombs, Monte Hawley needs no introduction, he was the top actor of his time, Barbara Butterbeans Bradford is very funny with Mantan Moreland.
