"When I read the back cover of this DVD, I knew there was something special here. Big Sid Catlett, Gene Krupa, Jitterbug dancing and Tim (the Kingfish) Moore as a female impersonator! It exceeded my expections. The comedy is funny and the musical numbers are a revelation. One minor disapointment was that the drum solos from Sid Catlett and Gene Krupa were dubbed. Otherwise, the music is great (The Slam Stewart Trio, Deek Watson and the Brown Dots, the Harlemaniacs and the two lead actresses who each sing a number). Granted, this is a low budget film, but the energy of the performers makes up for it. Recommended for those seeking obscure performers or bizarre comedy."
