Description by OLDIES.com:
Check and Double Check is a rare cultural artifact from the dawn of sound film-making. Freeman F. Gosden and Charles J. Correll had already achieved radio stardom on the "Amos 'N' Andy" show, and their voices had become extremely familiar to American audiences. The two white actors had to don minstrel black-face in order to portray the duo in their first "all-talking" motion picture in 1930. While it may seem politically incorrect by today's standards, this curious film highlights the sure comic timing and vocal talent of the two radio stars and features performances by young Duke Ellington in the bargain.
- The Turner videocassette is part of the "RKO Collection."
- Duke Ellington and His Orchestra perform "Old Man Blues" and "Three Little Words."
