The Duke Is Tops

All-black musical stars Horne and Cooper as a performer-producer team who split when she gets a big break on Broadway. The break turns out to be a bust, but Cooper shows up and together they make it to the top. Poor dialog punctuated with decent musical tunes. "I Know You Remember," sung by Horne, is the standout.
