…which I do, you may well agree with me that this is absolutely brilliant. Never mind the bit at the start when Cab Calloway is with them, doing a bit of scat singing. He leaves them after a few moments, and lets them get on with it. This is pure artistry and perfect co-ordination, and the Nicholas Brothers make it look so easy because they have worked very, very hard at their art. They must have extraordinary lower body strength. At one point, with seemingly no effort at all, they both do standing jumps up onto platforms at least three feet high. At other moments, they make a man’s eyes water! How long did they have to practice doing the splits like that before they could do it without hurting themselves? Fred Astaire, no mean dancer himself, called this the best dance routine ever filmed. This was from a movie called “Stormy Weather” (1943) ( Note the all-black audience – that’s the way things were in America then.). If you like this sort of thing, which I do, watch this and then compare it to the second rate crap that people fawn over these days in “Dancing With The Stars” and similar wastes of time. If you don’t like this sort of thing, I’m sorry to have bothered you: please click onto something else.
