"Headline Bands" is a collection of of brief numbers by some of the big bands of the late 1930s - several years later. I don't know if this music was considered dated by the end of World War II or not.

It starts off with Woody Herman and his Orchestra playing "Carolina in the Morning". It seems like the band was probably going to start "wailing" or whatever terms were being used at the time, but were cut off in mid-song by showing Larry Clinton and his Orchestra with Carol Bruce. I'm not familiar with the band, the vocalist, or the song. They're on screen for maybe a minute, if that.

Next is Jimmy Dorsey and his Orchestra playing a fairly fast tempo number complete with a drum solo. Part of what they play seems to be "Hold that Tiger".

Following Dorsey, is Rubinoff and his Violin - the orchestra apparently doesn't count. He starts off with a violin solo that's fairly slow-paced. The pace does increase and the whole orchestra does get involved.

Finally, there's Vincent Lopez and his Orchestra with a fairly young Betty Hutton with a pretty amazing vocal range that includes some sort of bird sounds. She does punch several people in her enthusiasm.
