Lazybones was a pretty entertaining Hoagy Carmichael Soundie with Dorothy Dandridge and Peter Ray doing a dance
19 August 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Well, here's my third review of a Soundie that featured Dorothy Dandridge, only this time she only dances. The singer here is Hoagy Carmichael on the piano singing the title song whose lyrics is by Johnny Mercer. He has a couple of beautiful white women at his side while Dorothy is a maid who's trying to keep butler Peter Ray from letting a tray with pitcher on it from falling off his head. Despite the obvious stereotyping of the last two, they do perform a pretty entertaining dance during the instrumental part of Hoagy's song, particularly Ray's constant moving of his head in trying to balance the tray. Since this is only three minutes, I don't think much harm concerning those types is done here. And Hoagy is sooo cool with his singing. So on that note, I recommend Lazybones.
