Dusty Fletcher plays a comic, tap dancer and bad magician. While practicing his routine for that evening's variety show, he accidentally vanishes Lola (Nellie Hill), the girlfriend of the show's manager Baltimore Dumdone (George Wiltshire). She was wearing a thousand-dollar string of pearls and it seems most likely that criminality is afoot.
Dusty's slapstick antics take up a large portion of the film's first act, with some Keystone Cops type schtick thrown in when four police officers (Fredie Robinson, William Campbell, Edgar Martin and Sidney Easton) begin chasing Dusty in and out of his disappearance-cabinet.
The variety show features Ray Abrams & Gator Green playing the two-tenor sax number "Gator Serenade" written by Green, supported by the rest of the Andy Kirk and His Orchestra. Beverly White sings the racy jazz tune "I Don't Want to Get Married." Her second song "Ain't Nobody's Business What I Do" is likewise racy, about the joy of carousing and cheating: "If I feel like going out and having some fun/ With some young cat who looks like he might be my son/ That ain't nobody's business what I do."
The act of Warren Patterson & Al Jackson sing Jule Styne & Sammy Kahn's "I Believe," Warren leading off and Al doing his part as a Louis Armstrong impersonation. Then Al sings the Fats Waller classic "Ain't Misbehavin" as Warren tap dances. He is still dancing like crazy when Al adds "Wonderful One" to his medley. Lastly they impersonate the Ink Spots though there's only two of them to recreate "If I Didn't Care," Warren duplicating the tenor lead very nicely until he intentionally goes comical while Al does the spoken bridge with new silly words.
Order this rarely-seen and hard-to-find classic today for the low price of $5.99.
New Additions At Zeus:
Bad Company (1931)

Stars: Helen Twelvetrees, Ricardo Cortez, John Garrick

Writer/director Tay Garnett reunited the stars of his fabulously successful Her Man (1930) for the 1931 RKO crime drama Bad Company. Ricardo Cortez plays a ruthless, near-psychotic gangster who withal follows his own code of honor. Helen Twelvetrees co-stars as a trusting young woman who marries mob lawyer John Garrick, never dreaming that both her husband and her brother Frank Conroy are involved in the rackets. When she does learn the horrible truth, it is she who determines to "cleanse" her family of the tinge of crime by dealing directly with Cortez-and we mean directly. Drawing most of its incidents from actual events, the screenplay even serves up a fascinating variation on the St. Valentine's Day massacre (it's staged in a hotel room rather than a garage, and it's the best scene in the film). Bad Company was adapted by Garnett and Thomas Buckingham from Put on the Spot, a novel by New York "expose" journalist Jack Lait.
Beloved Infidel (1959)

Stars: Gregory Peck, Deborah Kerr, Eddie Albert

Gregory Peck stars as the great American writer F. Scott Fitzgerald in this film based on a memoir by Sheilah Graham, who was Fitzgerald's paramour during his final days. Graham (played by Deborah Kerr) was a gossip columnist and aspiring novelist who met Fitzgerald during his latter days as a Hollywood screenwriter. Deep in debt thanks to his wife's stay in a mental hospital and his daughter's private school tuition, Fitzgerald took a job writing film scripts to pay the bills, as he attempted to complete another novel that would re-establish his position as one of the important American authors of his century. Graham became Fitzgerald's aid and inspiration as he tried to steer himself away from alcohol and focus on his work, but the author was no longer as strong or stable as he once was. While Graham and Fitzgerald were in love, they often fought, and their efforts came to naught when he died of heart failure before completing The Last Tycoon, with Graham at his side. Eddie Albert co-stars as Carter, a character based on Fitzgerald's close friend Robert Benchley.
Below The Deadline (1936)

Stars: Cecilia Parker, Russell Hopton, Theodore von Eltz

Ex-cop Russell Hopton, framed for a crime he didn't commit, gets a second chance in life after enduring a train wreck. His face mashed to pulp in the disaster, Hopton undergoes plastic surgery, emerging from the gauze with a brand-new face. Heading back to New York to find out who framed him, Hopton falls in love all over again with his former girlfriend Cecilia Parker, who-like everyone else--fails to recognize him. The writer/ director team of Charles W. Lamont and Ewart Adamson seemed more comfortable with the 2-reel comedies they'd been doing at Educational Studios than they were with the feature-length convolutions of Below the Deadline. The film was produced by the dying firm of Chesterfield-Invincible, then picked up for distribution by Grand National.
Below Zero (1930)

Stars: Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Bobby Burns

In the dead of winter, street musicians Stanley and Oliver aren't getting much business in a run-down neighborhood, and then their instruments are smashed in a run-in with a formidable woman. Their luck seems to turn when they find a wallet full of money, but are about to lose it to a thief when a passing policeman chases the thug off. The boys treat the officer to a meal, but when Stanley pulls out the wallet to pay, the cop recognizes it as his own. Rather than running them in as pickpockets, he pays his own tab and leaves Stanley and Oliver at the mercy of the gruff headwaiter.
Ben Casey DVD

Stars: Vince Edwards, Sam Jaffe, Jeanne Bates

Gritty realistic hospital drama featuring manly Dr. Casey against the medical establishment, at first, under the watchful eye of Dr. Zorba, and later under the thumb of Chief of Surgery Dr. Freeland.


Aar-Paar (1954)

Stars: Shyama, Guru Dutt, Jagdish Sethi

Kalu is a taxi-driver in Bombay, India. He has two women who love him and would like to marry him. Kalu first wants to establish himself, and become rich, before he can even think of marriage. One of the women who loves him, has a father who is involved in gangster-type activities, and would like Kalu also to join him so that he can get rich soon. Kalu has now to decide to become rich quick or sleep better.
