This all-black-cast musical showcases the singers, dancers and comedians who perform at Harlem's Golden Slipper Club. The plot revolves around a debt-plagued gambling club owner (Monte Hawley) who gets arrested for murder. The real attractions, though, are top-billed comic Mantan Moreland (playing himself), who does a hilarious stand-up act, singing act Tall, Tan and Terrific and a troupe of dancers called the Gorgeous Astor Debutantes.
