A young woman who is unable to pay her rent gets some unexpected help when the other tenants throw a last-minute rent party in her apartment. In the process, they all charm the landlady out of a year's rent. The entire story is told in song (swing music) and dance (Jitterbug, Lindy Hop etc.).Written by

Jan Clayton is short of money for rent, so neighbor Ben Lessy organizes a rent party in this musical short directed by Charles Walter as he made the transition from choreographer to director.
It's a lively short with good music by Les Brown and orchestra, with a bunch of White people singing and doing recitative in live talk. Cinematographer Jackson Rose handles the camera with a lot of movement that convinces me it was shot with a crab dolly.
Miss Clayton was one of the many pretty young ladies who sang who made a stab at Hollywood, and was successful, although she never made it to stardom: 11 movies, a few shorts, and finally a long run on the TV show LASSIE, in which she appeared on well over a hundred episodes.
