-- Synopsis:
     Look UP! Look OUT! Look SWEET! - Louis Jordan's the Maestro with a Beat!. Of All the Louis Jordan (1908-1975) made a series of low-budget musical comedies, this is the best by far. An interesting look at Black college life in the 1940s. This is a common plot in many movies of the Musician or actor saving something or someone from peril. This is the tale of Jordan returning to his old college to settle scores with a rival and raise money to save the school from being taken over by the scoundrel. A bit more story and better acting than what usually appeared in Jordan's comedies.

* Features:
     Long legged Dimples Daniels does a dance number called " Lizzie Dancing" (whatever that is?.) There is not much dancing in this film but is great if you are a Louis Jordan Fan or searching for bizzare eccentric dance numbers and dancers.
