For one generation, he needs no introduction. For the next, he's the greatest Pop star they've never heard of. Regardless of where you fall, let's all make time to get reacquainted with the master of mirth and music, Kay Kyser. Bandleader Kyser rose to the top thanks to his talented band (including the legendary Ish Kabibble) and his trademark "Ol' Professor" persona, through which Kay quizzed and enthralled audiences on stage, studio, and screen. Swing Fever finds Kay using music and hypnosis to turn a chump into a champ. Featuring Lena Horne, the Merrill Abbott Dancers, & Ava Gardner. Playmates sees Kyser and John Barrymore playing themselves in a reality-twisting showbiz parody. Washed up thespian Barrymore agrees to turn bumpkin Kyser into a Shakespearean actor in exchange for a radio contract. The whole affair culminates in a swing version of Romeo and Juliet. The always wonderful Lupe Velez adds spice and song.
