Double Deal (1939) charms with its infectious rhythms and a heartwarming story of musical ambition. Monte Hawley as Jim McCoy delivers a captivating performance as a jazzman struggling to overcome racial prejudice in the music industry. His soulful duets with the stunning Jeni Le Gon as Nita Walker add a spark of romance and shared passion. However, the film’s simplistic plot and occasional melodramatic moments can’t match the raw energy of its musical sequences. Still, Double Deal offers a valuable snapshot of African American talent in Hollywood’s early years, making it a worthwhile watch for its historical significance and undeniable musical verve.
