The absolute last of my Amos and Andy double features. I mean it this time. Until I find more of the old classics from before the 1940’s.
First Show: Singing Recital Postponed. 09-21-1939. The announcer reports technical difficulties, and an organ interlude is presented instead. The show begins with Andy talking with Kingfish about a recent singing recital where Andy bombed in singing his part. Andy attempts to justify himself, and brags that he can do better if given another chance.
Kingfish reads the critical review about the performance in the news paper. Andy deals with his rejection by discussing the matter with Henry VanPorter. Henry, Kingfish, and Andy talk about the tallent show, and who might be to blame for the weaker points of the show, and the practicing that goes into producing a show. Amos enters to get in on the discussion about the show.
Second show: Sign On The Dotted Line. 03-10-1944.
Andy is searching for Madam Queen. He needs to find her to sign for a financial agreement that would result in Andy becoming $600 richer. Kingfish fills in details of events from last week’s show, and as he talks with Henry VanPorter, he shares his plan to get a part of the cash.
Meanwhile, Andy and Amos talk about more of the reasons Andy needs to find Madam Queen. Kingfish and Andy read through the day’s letters and bills. One good thing happens when they learn of Madam Queen’s whereabouts. As Kingfish plots to get Andy’s money, Andy gets all spiffed up as he prepares to butter up his long lost gal.
Kingfish coaches Andy on how to speak to Madam Queen, but in the process Lightning walks in for a comical moment of misunderstanding. The friends move to Andy’s office to get some paper flowers, and get some fast talk from Gabby.
The moment finally arrives for Andy to meet Madam Queen at her beauty parlor. The two chat about old times, but will she sign the paperwork? More than that, are old flames rekindling?
Later, he and Amos talk about Andy’s feelings for his old gal. As rosy as things may appear for Andy, little does he know that Kingfish is about to ambush him with his business proposal to snag the money.
In a last minute plot twist, Kingfish is foiled, and the money remains safe.
