Description by OLDIES.com:

Jivin' In Be-Bop (1946, B&W): Dizzy Gillespie takes center stage and hosts an old time variety show from the "Chitlin Circuit" captured in its entirety. Jivin' in Be Bop features one smash show-stopping tune after another performed by Dizzy and His Orchestra intermingled with hilarious vaudeville routines.

Starring Dizzy Gillispie and His Orchestra, Helen Humes, Ray Sneed Sanji, Freddie Carter and Ralph Brown; Directed by Leonard Anderson and Spencer Williams; Screenplay by Powell Lindsay; Produced by William D. Anderson.

Beware (1946, B&W): Ware College is about to close its doors forever because its endowment has run dry. A last minute appeal to famous alumni brings the college's plight to the attention of Louis Jordan. Jordan, known as King of the Jukebox, set things right by hounding the good-for-nothing grandson of Ware College's founder into spending his fortune on education rather than fast living. Beware features over a half dozen numbers by jazz great Louis Jordan and his Tympany Five.

Starring Louis Jordon and his Tympany Five, Frank Wilson, Emory Richardson, Valerie Black, Milton Woods, Jospeh Hilliard, Tommy Hix, Dimples Daniels; Produced and Directed by Bud Pollard.

Product Description:

JIVIN' IN BE BOP: A collection of hit singing and dancing numbers from the Jive era of the 1940's.

BEWARE:When Louis and his band find themselves stranded at a college, they discover a feud between the dean and a pretty gym teacher--really just an excuse for 10 musical numbers.
