Great Black Entertainers, 9 July 2002
Author: msladysoul ( from Michigan

This is a great short film, you can catch it on Turner Classic Movies, if you can catch it. The lovely Adelaide Hall sings a great song and do some foot-stomping tap dancing, The Nicholas Brothers, the greatest tap dance team dances great. Eunice Wilson sings a big song of the time, does some great dances, back with the Five Racketeers. Some black acrobats. Great way to spend 11 minutes. Most black entertainers couldn't be in movies, so short films were the only way they could show their talents, and short films were big in the 30s and 40s.
