Description by OLDIES.com:

Where's My Man, To-Nite? (1943, B&W): Young Rodney Tucker Jr. is leading an aimless life. His out-spoken grandfather Samuel Tucker, a decorated army veteran, thinks the military would do the boy good, but Rodney wants nothing to do with wearing a uniform. Uncle Sam has his own ideas, and a surprising piece of mail arrives, "inviting" Rodney to visit his local draft board. Boot camp rubs Rodney the wrong way and he soon goes AWOL. But if Grandpa Tucker has anything to say about it, Rodney will make something out of himself yet.

Starring Hugo Martin, George T. Sutton, Emmett Jackson, Myra D. Hemmings; Written & Directed by Spencer Williams.

Mystery in Swing (1943, B&W): Debonair crooner Prince Ellis strides across the stage like royalty at his nightclub, where he's the focus of everyone's attention. Men envy him and women want to be with him, especially young Linda Carroll, who ignores repeated warnings to steer clear of the singer's seductive allure. Linda's father, John, strongly disapproves of Prince Ellis' unwholesome attention to his virginal daughter. When Ellis is gunned down, John is the obvious suspect, but it turns out many people wanted the star dead for their own reasons.

Starring Monte Hawley, Buck Woods, Marguerite Whitten, Robert Webb; Directed by Arthur Dreifuss.

Product Description:

This double feature includes two vintage classics of black cinema. In WHERE'S MY MAN TO-NIGHT' (aka MARCHING ON), an army private becomes an unlikely hero while trying to avoid a confrontation with his superior. In MYSTERY IN SWING, a great soundtrack sets the scene when a loathed band leader is killed in a happening Harlem nightclub.
