Ethel Waters- Truly a Black Legend!
9 July 2002 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

Ethel Waters is great in this short film. She sings some great song, probably white people will take offense to one of her songs "Underneath our Harlem Moon", but black folks understand it. Ethel Waters sit the standards in music and movies for blacks, she was one of the first blacks to sing on white radio, her songs were sung by everyone, she was praised by both black and whites, her voice appealed to everyone. Sammy Davis Jr. is great, he's young, but its evident to see why he made it. You think Michael Jackson and Frankie Lymon was great, well Sammy Davis Jr. is great in this, not shy at all. Great dancing and singing by well-known singing of that time. Check this one out if you can. Turner Classic Movies shows if from time to time, search hard for this one, but when you'll find it, you'll treasure it.
