Bandleader Tim Hartley's father objects strongly to his son's occupation choice and packs him off to Hawaii to manage the family hotel holdings. This proves to be a wrong move as Hawaiia has more bands than it does pineapples.
This film was on a double-feature bill with Beau Geste at the Fox Theater in Riverside, Calif., on Sept. 9, 1939, when the manager made the announcement before the film began that the regularly scheduled movies would be preempted for a movie preview. He said the audience could stay or leave now, but no one could come or go once the preview movie began. When the preview's credits began and Margaret Mitchell's name came onscreen just before the title "Gone with the Wind" began to sweep across the screen, the audience went wild with unceasing cheers and applause for several minutes. The emotional impact was so much that Producer David O. Selznick, unrecognized and sitting in the back of the theater, wept uncontrollably. The rest of the world would not have opportunity to see the much-hyped and highly anticipated "Gone with the Wind" until its premeire more than three months later on Dec. 15 in Atlanta, Ga.
