Promotional poster of Columbia’s 1944 film "Kansas City Kitty". The plot of this film centers around Polly Jasper, portrayed by Joan Davis, as a charming wisecracking piano teacher, that gets involved with some shady music publishers, Latham & Clark. The publishers sell their business to Polly and her friend Eileen Hasbrook, portrayed by Jane Frazee, one hour before the company is sued for the legitimacy of the song “Kansas City Kitty”. Polly happens to be obsessed with her music loving dentist Dr. Henry Talbot, portrayed by Erik Rolph, who is not quite as romantically inclined.
