Joan Davis in Charge
27 February 2016 | by drednmSee all my reviews

Odd little comedy with Joan Davis in charge of publicity for a nightclub. She rooms with two women (Jinx Falkenburg and Joan Woodbury) who have a singing act that's going no place. After Davis books an act from Cuba and the act disappears at the airport, she substitutes her two friends as the Cubans. They fake their way through bad accents and a few songs and are a hit. But things go awry when the two Cubans reappear with the Feds on their tail because they entered the country illegally. What will happen to Falkenburg and Woodbury? How will Davis square it with her boss? Fast-paced little B comedy with a couple good songs. The 3 women stars are all good. Co-stars include Lloyd Bridges as the displaced boyfriend, Don Beddoe as the nightclub owner, Fortunio Bonanova as a fellow Cuban, Antonio Moreno, Eddie Kane, and Sig Arno. Bruce Bennett shows up as a Fed.

Odd that Joan Davis doesn't get a number.
