Apparently, The Night Club was planned as a feature-length adaptation of a popular novel by Katherine Brush. What emerged was a 52-minute crazy quilt, comprised of selected scenes from 24 all-talkie Paramount short subjects, filmed in 1928 by director Robert Florey. This series was intended to spotlight the New York nightclub scene by featuring the biggest "acts" at work before enthusiastic audiences. After a few introductory comments by actor-playwright Donald Ogden Stewart, the film segues into a series of musical specialties, featuring such celebrated performers of the period as Fanny Brice, Anne Pennington, Tamara Geva and Pat Rooney. Also included is a dramatization of the F. Scott Fitzgerald short story "Pusher-in-the-Face," Most critics regarded Night Club as little more than a glorified "trailer," promising much and delivering little.
