Format: DVD
EASTWEST DVDs offer no subtitles or extras beyond plot synopses on the cases's back cover. Their space-saver packs provide a nice variety of lesser-known films for bargain prices.

Duke Ellington's Cotton Club orchestra is featured midway through CHECK AND DOUBLE CHECK. JAZZ COCKTAIL, from British label ASV LIVING ERA is a highly recommended CD of this band's 1930-era music.

Except for a brief stint in THE BIG BROADCAST OF 1936 and a couple of voiced-over cartoon shorts, CHECK AND DOUBLE CHECK marks the only screen appearance for the most popular team in early American radio. The movie itself is now considered un-PC by some for its stereotyped portrayal of African-Americans by corked-up white men.

SYNOPSIS--
The struggling taxi business of Amos Jones (Gosden) and Andrew Brown (Correll) gets a boost when they're hired to transport Duke Ellington's band to a Westchester high society party. The orchestra performs several numbers. At their lodge meeting, A&A are chosen to retrieve a paper marked "Check and Double Check" from a supposedly haunted house. Instead they locate in the creepy mansion a missing deed that can potentially help the son of their former employer.

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 IMDb viewer poll rating.

(5.3) Check and Double Check (1930) - Freeman Gosden/Charles Correll/Duke Ellington/Sue Carol/Irene Rich/Rolf Harolde/Charles Morton/Edwin Martindel/Rita La Roy/Russ Powell

While it was interesting to see how the actors portrayed the African American, I was a little disapointed that King Fish was hardly in the program at all. I guess I'm used to the orginial TV serries with Tim Moore.

Format: DVD
Of course modern PC types will get bent out of shape over the very fact that A&A creators Gosden and Corell are in blackface through much of the film (the two white comedians rather convincingly played Amos & Andy in "blackvoice" on the radio), but that is far form this film's worst shortcomings.

Few will want to watch this more than once for curiousity reasons. This film is stiff, weak, and corny. Poorly written and long and dull in stretches. It was so bad that A&A themselves disowned it and washed their hands of the film afterward.

There are a few mildly entertaining bits. A&A's encounter with a traffic cop early in the film, the "mulsifyin' and revidin" routine, (I still crack up when Andy says, "you gots to TIMES (multiply) it!"), the tire changing gag (repeated in the TV episode GETTING MOMMA MARRIED 20 years later), and the musical interlude with the Duke Ellington band. This aside, nothing to write home about. You're better off with the radio eps on CD/MP3 or DVDs of the TV show of the 1950s.
