Storyline

In 2004, historian, writer and musician Scott Allen Nollen, incensed at someone's foolish reference to the great Dooley Wilson as "Dooby," composed this tribute to the African American performers of Hollywood's "Golden Age," and recorded all the instruments for the song under his band name of Jimmie Dynamite. The song, with references to Dooley Wilson, Stepin Fetchit, Fred Toones, Willie Best, Sidney Poitier, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Humphrey Bogart, Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence, is among Nollen's "handful of favorites" from his 44-year songwriting "career." Written by Michael Allen
