Cocoanut Grove (1938) DVD-R

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Starring Fred MacMurray, Hariet Hlliard, Ben Blue, Eve Arden, Rufe Davis

Directed by Alfred Santell



Print: black/white

Runtime: 85 min.

Genre: musical

Print Quality: B



The legendary Cocoanut Grove nightclub is the setting for this all-star

Paramount musical. Fred MacMurray heads the cast as Johnny Prentice, a

small-time bandleader who heads to the Grove for an all-important

audition. He is accompanied by his foster son Half-Pint (Billy Lee), a

talented drummer in his own right. Joining the troupe is Linda Rodgers

(Harriet Hilliard), ostensibly Half-Pint's tutor but actually an aspiring

vocalist. The thinnish plot serves as an excuse for an unending stream of

specialty numbers featuring Royal Hawaiian orchestra leader Harry

Owens, comedian Ben Blue, the zany Yacht Club Boys (a WASP version of

the Ritz Brothers), funny-noise specialist Rufe Davis and bandmaster Red

Stanley. In the course of events, nine new original songs are performed,

none of which graduated to hit-parade status. Curiously, the real

Cocoanut Grove is never seen, though the Paramount mockup is

reasonably convincing.
