Description

Following yet another show-stopping performance, famed vaudevillian "Lollypop" Jones finds the dead body of a woman in his dressing room. After repeated attempts to dispose of the body -- including hiding it in a closet, and stuffing it down a laundry chute -- fail, Lollypop realizes that his unwanted guest isn't dead... she's a zombie! 

Onnie "Lollypop" Jones (1897-1954) was a popular African-American vaudeville singer, tap dancer, and comedian in the 1940s. In 1946, he was enlisted by All-American News in Chicago, Illinois to star in a series of "streamlined" (short) musical comedy features. These included Midnight MenaceLucky Gamblers, and Chicago After Dark. All-American News had originally been formed during World War II to specifically make newsreels documenting the efforts of African-American soldiers overseas for blacks-only theaters. Midnight Menace was also released as Hidden Menace. Lollypop performs his signature hit, "Don't Sell My Monkey, Baby", with Alma Jones.
