Horn Blows At Midnight


-- Synopsis:
   Trumpet player (Benny) in love with a harpist (Smith) who gets him a radio job on the " Paradise Coffee Program," which advertises a coffee that promises a gentle sleep and sweet dreams. And dream he does, but one would not call it sweet: he dreams he is an angel sent to earth to blow the trumpet at a swank New York Hotel that will destroy the world. This film is very silly and a good funny film the whole family can enjoy.

* Features:
    Some good nightclub dancing fills the screen. Features Jean Phelps-Veloz, Dean Collins and John Archer doing some (Hollywood Style) West Coast Swing, Lindy, Jitterbug.
