This entry in Paramount's "Headliner" series of musical shorts headlines Cab Calloway, His Orchestra and Ethel Moses. THey do some numbers at Harlem's "Cotton Club" and following the show, they go over to a Harlem rendezvous and shimmy at a jitterbug party. Hi-de-Ho! Written by

Cab performs a couple of his songs in his wild, seemingly effortless fashion and threatens the camera in this soundie from 1935. Although he seems strangely contained in this short, any chance to see Calloway perform his music should not be missed.
