Night Club Girl was designed as a feature-length "screen test" for new Universal contractee Vivian Austin. The plot is the old one about a couple of young showbiz aspirants who are given their Big Break by a hotshot journalist. In this instance, the aspirants are tapdancer Ellen (Austin) and Betty Huttonish songstress Janie (Judy Clark), while the benevolent journalist is columnist Clark Phillips (Edward Norris). In a cute cliché reversal, Ellen and Janie's debut at Maxie Rosenbloom's nightclub proves to be a disaster. Even so, there's a happy ending, not to mention dozens of music numbers performed by the likes of the Mulcays, The Delta Rhythm Boys and Paula Drake.
