A unique show was staged every Sunday night at the famous Trocadero nightclub in Hollywood. with agents, talent scouts and studio execs attending, plus many big-name stars of the movies. On this particular Sunday night, the looking-for-stardom (or a job) acts included the Brian Sisters, Connee Boswell, Peter Lind HAyes (billed as Lind Hayes). Reginald Deny was also on hand posing as a candid cameraman snapping shots of all the acts, and kidding the celebs in attendance as he gets them to pose for him. Written by

The wine list at the Trocadero Club includes the items Chertok et Fils, Quimby et Quimby, and Gene Ruggiero et Fils. These are allusions to MGM's short subject producers Jack Chertok and Fred Quimby, and film editor Gene Ruggiero. See more »
MGM short has Reginald Denny hosting three musical acts including Louis & Celeste, The Three Brian Sisters and Medina & Mimosa. The acts are singing inside the Trocadero, which has many famous faces including George Hamilton, Groucho Marx, Frank Morgan, Frank McHugh, Robert Benchley and Dick Foran. If you're a fan of any of these actors then you might want to check this out if you must see everything they've done but there are a lot of weaknesses here. For starters, the sound quality is very poor and I don't think this is an issue with the print shown on TCM. It really appears that the sound was recorded poorly and this leads to the issues. Another problem is that the comedy is just downright bad. The musical numbers are certainly worth listening to as are seeing the famous faces.
