Stars on Parade (1946)


Jane Bennett (Jane Cooley) and Bob Howard are responsible for putting together a radio show for a cosmetic company, but plans fall short when they are unable to find talent. Jane's brothers, Johnny (Milton Woods), who owns the studio, returns from the war, and he and his girlfriend, Patty (Francine Everett), decides to stop by the studio. As they arrive, they realize the talent level is not very good and begin to worry about the contract from the company will not be renewed. By fate, two radio stars, Don DeHaven (Duke Williams) and Lucille Nester (Claire Graham), are stranded in front of the studio, and Bob Howard and Johnny greet them. With the help of the radio stars, Johnny and Jane must entertain their guests while they gathered talent for the show.
