Crashing The Conga
21 April 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Mary Treen and Sally Payne play a couple of rube tourists in Hollywood who would like to crash a swank Hollywood nightclub and get their chance when they see an opportunity to get into Hollywood La Conga where the famous Conga dance was invented. The problem is that you need membership or a reservation that someone probably had to leave you in a will. Still our girls are resourceful.

Once in there they have a few adventures with the staff because of their lack of reservations and meet a few Hollywood stars as well who make some guest appearances.

Still it's the Rhumba beat of Eduardo Chavez and his Orchestra that provides most of the entertainment. Rhumba Rhythm At The Hollywood La Conga has plenty of that if that is your taste in music.

And it's served up well with more than a dash of comedy courtesy of our two tourists.
