An interesting example of the filmed radio broadcasts that were popular in the 1930s, this movie offers dozens of performers who were enormously popular in their day singing songs they made standards in the American songbook or doing the shticks for which they were famous. Among the best are Kate Smith singing "When the Moon Comes Over the Mountain," Band leader Cab Calloway's "Minnie the Moocher," and Bing Crosby crooning his classic "When the Blue of the Night (Meets the Gold of the Day)."
