-- Synopsis: The plot is simple: marital infidelity. Cab Calloway receives a telegram while en route to an engagement at the Cotton Club, and he must improvise a new tune in the sleeping car of his train. A few of the films scenes are at the Cotton Club, and many scenes evoke Harlem as the magical center of black America. Cinematography by William O. Steiner
