Mr. Jans, the idea man at Globe Broadcasting Company, is about to lose his job because he's come up with no ideas. He proposes a broadcast from Dutch New Guinea, a land that hasn't changed in 10,000 years. His boss, Maxwell, approves the idea and sends Jans and Whalen, agreeing to pay Jans $5000 if the show succeeds. Once in New Guinea, the two radio men must audition the local talent then do the show. Singers, dancers, and a band perform. Meanwhile, Whalen can't remember why he tied a string around one of his fingers. What does he need to remember? Written by
At the Globe Broadcasting Company, radio station "idea man" Harry Jans and former school chum Harold Whalen are assigned to broadcast from a tropical island. They bring members of a population of prehistoric "Wild People" to the microphone for songs and banter. After a couple of brief solos, the comedy team is joined by the "M.G.M. Dancing Girls" for a dance clad in cheeky costumes with bone necklaces and orange Afro wigs. Everyone is sure the musical is a big success, but a surprise ending limits the show's audience. "A Colortone Musical," this was, "Photographed by Technicolor Process."
**** Wild People (1932) Ray McCarey ~ Harry Jans, Harold Whalen, Joyzelle Joyner, Eddie Baker
