Calling All Stars is one of those musical-revue films which proliferated during the days of the British film industry's "quota" system. The plot, such as it is, is motivated by a clumsy record-factory employee, who while delivering a consignment of discs to a radio station manages to break them all. In desperation, the employee scurries about trying to convince all the recording artists to return to the studio and cut replacement discs. This serves as an excuse to bring a steady stream of popular British variety artists into the picture, most of whom were unknowns in the U.S. Among the more familiar faces in Calling All Stars are such American entertainers as Buck and Bubbles, the Nicholas Brothers, and harmonica virtuoso Larry Adler.
