Movie Info

In New Orleans, young Kit Latimer (Bonita Granville), who loves and plays the African-American music of the city, moves to Chicago with her architect father, George (Adolphe Menjou). Over the next several years Kit discovers that the ragtime of her childhood has developed into jazz and continues performing. Struggling coronet player Johnny Schumacher (Jackie Cooper) befriends Kit, who is then arrested after her music incites a riot at a club. Upon her release, Kit forms a band with Johnny.

Critic Reviews for Syncopation

All Critics (2) | Fresh (2)

  • A survey of American music in the past 40 years. [Full Review in Spanish]

    September 17, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The plot is pretty standard, if a little herky jerky, but what stands out above everything is the respect and passion all the characters have for the music. To his credit, Dieterle doesn't really play up the soap opera elements of the story either.
