Built around the premise of a Big Stage Show, Stormy Weather was a groundbreaking musical featuring an astounding all-African-American cast, perhaps never matched for sheer brilliance. Bill "Bojangles" Robinson stars as a World War I veteran who hopes to make it big as a dancer and win the heart of singer Selina Rogers (Lena Horne). The film’s slight showbiz-based romance is really a pretext for some 20 dazzling musical numbers performed by the sterling likes of Lena Horne, Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, Dooley Wilson, Cab Calloway, Fats Waller, The Nicholas Brothers and the Katherine Dunham dance troupe. The outstanding musical score is highlighted by Waller’s performance of his own “Ain’t Misbehavin’” and the classic title tune by Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler, sung in barn-burning fashion by the inimitable Miss Horne. Selected for preservation in the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry, this dazzling revue showcases the most astonishing performances you will ever see in a movie theater. Don’t miss the amazing Nicholas Brothers and their “Jumpin’ Jive” dance sequence—Fred Astaire himself said it was the greatest movie musical number he’d ever seen. Keep an eye out for uncredited contributions by jazz greats Zutty Hamilton, Coleman Hawkins and Taps Miller.
