A strong lineup of guest stars enhances the enjoyment of the Columbia B-plus musical Time Out for Rhythm. The somewhat futuristic storyline finds producers Dan Collins (Rudy Vallee), Mike Armstrong (Richard Lane) and Off-Beat Davis (Allen Jenkins) lining up talent for a series of television specials. Trouble brews when Collins selects singers Kitty Brown (Ann Miller) and Joan Merrill (playing herself) to star in his upcoming show, while Armstrong hires Frances Lewis (Rosemary Lane) for the same purpose. The plot is happily forgotten when the specialty acts begin parading before the camera. The highlights include a Busby Berkeley-ish musical production number featuring Glen Gray and His Casa Loma Orchestra, and the Three Stooges' classic "Maharaja" routine ("Ma Ha? Ah Ha!")
