An All-Colored Vaudeville Show was a very entertaining music short
10 February 2008 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This musical short from Warner Bros.-Vitaphone was what the title says in the following order: 1) The 3 Whippets-Three dancers that do somersaults, back-flips, and one of them stands at the top of two chairs with each foot on each chair without falling, 2) Adelaide Hall-a female singer who does a little dance, 3) The Nicholas Brothers-siblings Harold and Fayard, both under 20, tap-dance up a storm, and 4)Eunice Wilson and The Five Racketeers-another fine female singer with a song who then gives the stage to the backup group that then sings "Tiger Rag" (a.k.a "Hold That Tiger"), which is the unofficial theme song for the LSU Tigers, with Eunice then appearing at the end dancing as this very entertaining music short ends. If there was one negative thing I saw here it was the giant watermelon backdrop that was the background of the last act. I saw this on The Green Pastures DVD as an extra.
