Big Timers (1945)


































Starring:


Storyline
Beautiful and talented Betty is set to marry her soldier beau Tom, recently discharged from the Army. When her mother discovers that Tom's rich parents are planning to visit the hotel where they work, she schemes to "borrow" a lavish apartment and pretend that they are wealthy to make a good impression. All is going well until the real tenant, Mrs. Page returns! But Mrs. Page has sympathy for the love-birds, and invites all of her USO friends over to raise the roof with a swinging revue that includes a "whoopee dance" number by the exotic Tarzana, and a comic scat song performed by the inimitable Stepin Fetchit, all backed by the All American Girl Band! Starring Stepin Fetchit, Francine Everett, Gertrude Saunders and an all black cast. Directed by Bud Pollard.
