Its the only movie so black that black men were forced by the studio to don black face .gently caress all studio heads forever! Studio heads are why the first cut of Brazil sucked rear end. Despite its flaws Stormy Weather is still bad rear end.Its a must watch if you've never seen the Nicholas brothers dance. You can't over sell them they are by far the best dancers that God ever created. Please for the love of god watch this link! I'm convinced that a full fledged lifelong member of the KKK couldn't watch this clip without being in awe.

The jumping splits down a staircase at the end are basically magic as far as Im concerned.

For the opposite end of the spectrum Lucille Bogan's shave em dry

Why am I including this? Because its a 1930s classic youve never heard of featuring the lyrics

I got nipples on my titties
Big as the end of my thumb
I got something between my legs
That'll make a dead man come

Cab was great, but even though he is the start of the video skip ahead to the Nicholas Bros. They are doing Micheal Jackson's moves 50 years ahead of the time machines. The Nicholas Bros are to dancing what Ali was to boxing. They are simply playing a different game than everyone else.

Fun fact, Cab Calloway once got knifed in the rear end by Dizzy Gillespie over a spitball.

At five minutes in this version of Chattanooga Choo Choo was taken over by the Nicolas Brothers and the smoking hot Dorothy Danridge. The whole thing is watching from beginning to end though.

Nicolas Brothers brothers are so bad rear end. I wish that there was some way to bring them into every era of dance- they inspired moon walking 50 years ahead of M.J. Break dancing 50 years ahead of the curb, just lay that cardboard down bitch. They were like watching HD 80 years before it came out.

This is so awesome, just think, for the first 40 years after this was made the only way to see it was to sit through a goddamn Sonja Henie skiing movie in a theater.

Both this and girl from Kalmazoo they have to move to a completely different set from Glenn Miller because the studio couldn't have white and black actors on the same set.

These men are incredible athletes, I donít know how else to describe their abilities. Was that all one take?

All one take. Not just that but the Nicholas Brothers wouldn't choreograph their routines either. They would just improvise in the moment and take their cues off each other to stay in sync. They were self-taught dancers too.

Yeah, and they shook up a lot of norms when they got famous. Lenny Kravitz came in about the same time as well.

Finished with a career of 42 and 3 with at least one robbery. No titles but with penalty of brain damage lol. Boxing like all things is politics. I hate that 2-pac was killed he would have been one of the most unifying politicians if he had not been killed by the man. Hell by now he might have been in the running for POTUS.

They wanted them in a separate scene because they knew they'd have to cut them in order for the film to play in certain theaters, mainly in the south.
Black and white actors appeared in scenes together quite often and it was cool as long as the blacks were servants.
