The Merry Monahans (1944)

[Donald O'Connor, Peggy Ryan, Jack Oakie, Ann Blyth, Rosemary DeCamp]

The Merry Monahans are a vaudeville family act bouncing from circuit to circuit reconnecting with past friends and loves, creating new friends and romances, and dealing with personal vices.

At 01:57, as a delivery boy is walking backstage, he passes several performers warming up for their acts, including Duke Johnson doing a 3 club shower.

At 05:05, as Jack Oakie, playing Pete Monahan, is walking backstage, we see Murray Parker holding 3 clubs, but not juggling.
