The all-black Reet, Petite and Gone revives a plot that had already been worn out in mainstream "white" films. A singer's father dies, leaving her a fortune. A shifty attorney arranges things so that the singer is left out in the cold. The attorney meets with foul play, and the singer is the prime suspect. All ends happily with a floor show. The male star of Reet, Petite and Gone is bandleader Louis Jordan, while the singing is provided by June Richmond.
