It Happened In Harlem (1945)


Ed Smalls is doing a tremendous business at Smalls Paradise Cafe in Harlem because Billy Bond is making a big hit with his singing. But when Smalls tell Bond that there will be a lot of celebrities in for the show, Bond shows his boss the paper - it's from Uncle Sam. Smalls is frantic, as he knows of no one who can replace Bond, so he starts accepting auditions to replace Bond. Frankie, a singer with a bobbysoxer crowd but little known, is turned away at the audition. Little Miss Brown, a Frankie fan, persuades Bond to listen to Frankie.
