Worth Watching for Horne
12 June 2010 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Boogie-Woogie Dream (1944)

*** (out of 4)

Nice short from Official Films features Lena Horne is a pretty good role. A nightclub for white folks closes down so the dishwasher (Horne) and a couple co-workers come out to play some music not knowing that a couple people are still in there and can hear their music. Fans of Horne will certainly want to check this short out as we get a smoking version of "Unlucky Woman" with the actress giving some pure fire to the role. For the life of me I kept expecting her head to come off as her vocal range was amazing and she really made you feel like you should get up and dance. Teddy Wilson and His Band back her up and add a lot of fire as well. Albert Ammons and Pete Johnson play on the title track and make it well worth listening to as well. Apparently this was shot in 1941 but not released until after Horne became famous but either way this is certainly worth checking out.
