The exclusive Boydell family, members of the "400" set, suddenly became owners of two nightclubs; the father, Henry Boydell, comes into one, "The Silver Spoon," as the payment of a business debt and keeps his new enterprise a secret from his wife,Laura. But Laura has a secret of her own. The persuasive Count Castelli has sold her a bill of goods which turns out to be the "Coconut Beach," a notorious hot-spot in town. Their daughter, Peggy, is kept in the dark by both parents but her boyfriend, Jack Kent, stumbles across the father's secret and uses it as a wedge to get himself a job as the Master of Ceremonies at the "Silver Spoon." Both clubs are next-door to each other and there isn't enough patronage for both clubs. Something has to give. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A Plethora Of bands
6 April 2011 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

There are no less than 7 bands featured in this film,albeit that 5 of them are only featured in the finale.Amongst the best known are Jack Harris,Jack Jackson,Sidney Lipton and Joe Loss.The story is minimal ,it revolves around Fred Emney and his wife each acquiring a nightclub without wanting to tell the other.Bertha Belmore is a polce women trying to close the clubs for various infractions.The major part of the film is taken up with variety acts and musical numbers.Most of the numbers feature Clare Luce.Whoever told her she could sing was deluding her.She is absolutely awful.She cant carry a tune to save her life.There is one strange number about a spider.The variety turns are nothing out of the ordinary.there is an impressionist who takes off Wallace Beery,now thats one i haven't seen before and also Richard Tauber.It is entertaining if a bit overlong at just over 90 minutes.
