Overview

Filmed on a budget of about 78 cents, High Hat was a foredoomed attempt to turn radio singer Frank Luther into a movie star. Luther struggles manfully in the role of Suwanee Collier, the boyfriend and mentor of aspiring vocalist Elanda Lee (Dorothy Dare). A classical singer, Elanda refuses to lower herself to perform "swing" music until Collier shows her the way. Such reliable character actors as Franklin Pangborn, Gavin Gordon, Robert Warwick, Esther Muir and Clarence Muse go a long way to relieve the overall tedium. High Hat was distributed on a states-rights basis by Imperial Films, a fly-by-night firm best known for the Bela Lugosi epic Murder by Television.
