    Uncle Charlie & Mickey were why I tuned in,but the film is amazing.Starts with Mickey getting discharged from the VA,getting gifted with a set of drums by fellow vets,makes his way out to LA,where "Sonny" runs him off the road,but makes good by giving him a lift and a job.Mick runs off when the "parlor" he's taking bets for gets raided,where he tells bossman of the raid,and Sonny sends someone off to pay bail money for the crew.He goes to "Fluff's",where the girl whose car he jumped into after the raid works.He meets Fluff and the band,gets a chance to leave the lowlife behind and become a drummer when the drummer he's replacing goes into the Army.Things go well until he introduces Fluff's daughter to Sonny and she wants a movie career.In the meantime,a neighbor of hers has a son she needs to babysit while she has an "audition",so they're stuck with Timmy of LASSIE fame,a real brat,but one of his tricks comes in handy when Mick is being "taken for a ride" by Sonny's goons,Behr & Boynton.When he gets to Fluff's,Mick tells them about Sonny's boys,and "his girl" (Sonny's,never Mick's) goes to read Sonny the Riot Act.Mick tries to lie and say he did it to protect the girl he loved,but she confessed the truth.

    Very nice performances (as usual) by Mickey Rooney, William Demerest, among others. Sally Forrest is a doll and could Vic Damone ever sing!

    what got my attention aside from the great perfromances of 'Pops" and his band...Fluff sez to Stanley..heres a song i wrote..sits down at the piana and plays.."A Kiss to Build a Dream On"hey wait a sec..thats a VERY popular song..come to find out written by Kalmar, Ruby & Hammerstein...so who is Fluff playing in the movie?? which of these three??or is this just movieland BS...a way to introduce a new song? it IS cute to see Will Demarest singing w/ Rooney..rare moment.

    This is a neat little murder mystery told largely in flashback by jazz drummer Stan Maxton (Mickey Rooney). Good songs, fantastic jazz played by the greats of the day including Jack Teagarden, Earl "Fatha" Hines, and Louis Armstrong. Even Mickey Rooney & William Demerest (as the kindly nightclub owner) get in on the (musical) act. The female lead (Sally Forrest) is only so-so, but the rest of the cast is very good. The movie is dated now, of course, but still worth watching. BTW, the "strip" of the title is not the one in Las Vegas, but refers to Sunset Strip in Hollywood.

  • A STEP BACK IN TIME.
