John D (es) wrote: Easy going though mostly inane comedy. The leads are amiable, and Lucille Ball has some funny moments, including a drunk scene that is reminiscent of her famous Vitameatavegamin bit from I Love Lucy. Some choice quips in the beginning before the plot peters out and becomes overlong. Don't miss the Ethel Smith organ numbers, which are tons of fun.

Not to say thats a bad thing, far from it, it was about time they got their due credit, but they deserved a better script. The story isn't bad, but its really only there to connect the musical numbers.Bill Robinson plays Bill Williamson, and he gives us a quite a good bit of dancing throughout. This is it first and only leading role in a film and it was also his last film appearance, so I guess you could say he went out on a high note. He deserved a better movie career, and should be remember with folks like Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly as one of the best dancers on screen.Lena Horne plays Selina Rogers, and she stole the show IMO. Beautiful and elegant, She did a bit of dancing, but her singing was the real high point of the movie. She really deserved alot more leading roles, too bad the times really wouldn't allow it. She really only starred in 2 films, This one and Cabin in The Sky (1943), nearly everything else she was in were small scenes in musicals. She was cast in these parts because they could edit her scene out of the film for distribution in the prejudice South. She deserved better, and in a perfect world she would have recieved better I garauntee that.Dooley Wilson played Gabe Tucker, Bill's best friend who was always spending more money than he had trying to look like a big shot with the ladies. He was pretty good here, but he will always be remembered as Sam from Casablanca. I can't help but wonder what his career would have been like if black entertainers were viewed as equals instead of as second fiddles to the white entertainers.Everyone else played themselves, and they really kicked ass doing what they did best. The Nicholas Brothers really stand out though, their complicated "Jumpin' Jive" dance number was absolutely amazing, and unbelieveably, they did it all in one take! Now that is talent! Katherine Dunham and her dancers had a nice ballet-like number that I can't help but think may have influenced Gene Kelly's famous ballet numbers in On The Town (1948), An American in Paris (1951), and Singin' In The Rain (1952). It was cool to see Cab Calloway in all his glory, like many people the only other thing I've seen him in was The Blues Brothers, and that only captured a bit of how great a showman he was, he really goes all out here. Fats Waller and Ada Brown were excellent together, its a shame Fats died of pneumonia only 5 months after this film came out, we might have seen more of him in films if he had lived.A great showcase of African American talent, but they deserved a better story. This would be absolutely stomped by MGM's Cabin In The Sky that same year.
