A mysterious bellhop, played by Frankie Darro, tries to solve the mystery of a murder in a hotel. The two men become fast friends, and Darro and Moreland quickly become fast friends. Darro’s character did not subscribe to Hollywood’s condescension toward people of color. They are both portrayed with a blend of humor, humour, and a sense of mystery.
Jack Moreland, who played the part of a gambler, had a successful career in Hollywood. He began in the George Houston western “Frontier Scout” in 1938 and continued through the 1940s in films like “Irish Luck” (1939), “Chasing Trouble,” “Mr. Washington Goes to Town” and “Cracked Nuts.” In addition to his roles in major studio films, Moreland starred in several low-budget comedies with a black cast. He also starred in “Drums of the Desert,” a movie that starred him and drummer Ralph Byrd.
While Jack Moreland is known for his witty remarks and humor, he is not particularly good in the film. His performance in this film was a bit uneventful and unmemorable, but it still manages to be a fun watch. Despite the uncanny chemistry between him and Frankie Darro, Jack Moreland is a great choice for a bumbling amateur.
