Republic hadn't done an entry in its limited "Hit Parade" series since 1943, but here the studio resurrected the format with decent results. Albert and a trio of other performers (Moore, Edwards, and Lamb) form a musical nightclub act. Albert, a songwriter, falls in love with Moore. Their

act is a hit and they are soon signed to a Hollywood contract, but when Moore goes on to a movie career, the other members go their separate ways. Of course, there are the usual song numbers and specialty acts, plus a special appearance by Roy Rogers and Trigger. Songs include "Chiquita from Santa

Anita," "Is There Anyone Here from Texas?" "I Guess I'll Have That Dream Right Away," "Couldn't Be More in Love," "The Customer is Always Wrong," "The Cats Are Going to the Dogs" (Harold Adamson, Jimmy McHugh); "Brooklyn Buckaroos" (Foster Carling); "Out California Way" (Tim Spencer). One more

"Hit Parade" film would follow in 1950.
