Jolson is the proprietor of a Montmartre nightclub in what becomes a kind of 'musical Grand Hotel' with an array of romantic and melodramatic sub-plots interspersed with extravagant 'on-stage' musical numbers. As in most of his film appearances Jolson, in effect, plays an entertainer based on his own stage persona. The shift in dramatic emphasis from putting on a show ('the show musical') to battles between the sexes locates Wonder Bar, in Altman's terms, as 'a fairytale musical'. Berkeley's choreography is to be seen at its most imaginative in Don't Say Goodnight and at a low point in Goin' to Heaven on a Mule, a number which embodies the patronising 'happy darkie' cliches prevalent in Hollywood movies well into the forties
