Burlesque In Harlem (aka Rock 'n' Roll Burlesque)

-- Synopsis:
     Dewey "Pigmeat" Markham (" Here Comes the Judge" ) stars in this rousing, all-singin', all-dancin' spectacular set in a Harlem theater. Filming is a little lack-luster. There seems to be some confusion on dates and cast with this film (four different dates and casts,) so when I get them confirmed I will add more information.

* Features:
     The songs are lively, the dancing fleet of foot and the spirit contagious with a a bevy

of strippers, dancers and lively music. Slip and Slide do some Tap dance. Mabel Hunter is featured singing in the clip.
