Comedian Dusty Fletcher was best known for his comedy sketch, "Open the Door Richard," in which he played a drunk trying to get into his apartment, futilely begging his roommate Richard to, "open the door, Richard." That routine was recorded in a 1945 short in which Fletcher performed it on a nightclub stage set. Richard is never seen in that short.
This musical short, really just one song, is the answer to that routine. Stepin Fetchit plays Richard, and Dusty Fletcher doesn't appear. Fetchit lies in bed, and he talk-sings his reply, "I Ain't Gonna Open That Door," to the accompaniment of Earl Bostic's band. The public domain version doesn't include all the opening credits, but there are also two attractive actresses who appear briefly.
