Time Out says

A bizarre, juicy comedy in which dozens of eccentric characters are quarantined in a Shanghai hotel where a crazy local doctor has devised a 'radioscope' - a television set. Over the airwaves we get turns by Rudy Vallee, Baby Rose Marie, and Cab Calloway singing about 'that funny reefer man'. Meanwhile, Burns and Allen perform their shtick, and the incomparable WC Fields cocks a snook at Prohibition by his ostentatious consumption of beer - in flight too!
