Now Playing at the Packard Campus Theater (April 18, 2019)

The following is a guest post by Jenny Paxson of the Packard Campus.

Thursday, April 18 (7:30 p.m.)
Time Out for Rhythm (Columbia, 1955)
Narcissistic nightclub singer Rosemary Lane nearly succeeds in breaking up the successful talent agency of Rudy Vallee and Richard Lane, who eventually reteam to promote their hot new discovery as the headliner in a new variety show:  Rosemary’s former maid, tap-dancing prodigy Ann Miller. Sidney Salkow directed this eager-to-please Columbia Studios “B” musical that features a bevy of musical numbers by Vallee, Joan Merrill, Six Hits and a Miss, Glen Gray & the Casa Loma Orchestra, and Eduardo Durant’s Rhumba Band. Plus Miller’s dynamite dancing and some scene-stealing comedy bits by The Three Stooges! 35mm film print preserved by the Library of Congress Film Preservation Lab in 2015. 75 min.
