Ann Rogers is a lovely young opera student who would rather croon a mellow swing tune. Handsome Damon Dillingham is her classical voice instructor, although hes really the former leader of a swell big band, and he needs Anns tuition money to reunite hisgroup for a nightclub gig that follows appearances by Gene Krupa and his band. Can Ann and Damon reveal their true selves, work through misunderstandings and mixed-up feelings, and find romantic and musical bliss? Swings the thing for Frances Langford (beloved by World War II GIs for her performances overseas with Bob Hopes USO Tours) as she portrays Ann in Beat the Band. Phillip Terry (The Lost Weekend) plays Damon, Ralph Edwards (TVs This Is Your Life) provides comedy fun as a scheming band rep andGene Krupa isnt just on the nightclubs bill hes in the movie with a red-hot Shadow Rhapsody and more. **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
