This is a familiar archetypal story, which is exactly where its appeal lies. Relocated to a Southern military base, Joe is a soldier about to leave for flying school, planning to marry his longtime sweetheart Cindy Lou before he goes. But free-spirited parachute packer Carmen interferes, when Joe is tasked with delivering her to jail after she gets into a vicious fight with another woman. This begins their stormy romance, and ends with Joe AWOL, the pair on the run in Chicago, and Carmen deserting Joe for professional boxer Husky Miller. Undone by her fickleness, Joe's passion for Carmen has tragic consequences

"Made during the early years of the movie musical, this exuberant revue was one of the most extravagant, eclectic, and technically ambitious Hollywood productions of its day. Starring the bandleader Paul Whiteman, then widely celebrated as the King of Jazz, the film drew from Broadway variety shows to present a spectacular array of sketches, performances by such acts of the Rhythm Boys (featuring a young Bing Crosby), and orchestral numbers--all lavishly staged by veteran theater director John Murray Anderson. Presented here in the most complete form possible and restored to its early-Technicolor glory, King of Jazz offers a fascinating shapshot of the way mainstream American culture viewed itself at the dawn of the 1930s"--Container
