Synopsis:
Bill 'Bojangles' Robinson, and Lena Horne star in this classic musical which was a showcase for the best black talent of the 40's. Having just made 'Cabin In The Sky' Lena Horne shines again and makes the title song one of the great moments in the history of musicals, Fats Waller performs a rousing rendition of his signature tune, 'Ain't Misbehavin', Cab Calloway does 'The Jumping Jive' and joining Bill Robinson on the dance floor the Nicholas Brothers perform a jaw-dropping routine at the finale that has to be seen to be believed.

A showcase for extraordinary singing and dancing - Stormy Weather review by CW

Spoiler Alert
18/12/2017

The plot of movie Stormy Weather is a bit of fun fluff to string together one marvelos song and dance routine after another. This is a great chance to watch Lena Horne, Cab Calloway, Fats Waller and Bill Robinson. The best scene is the fabulous tap dance number by the Nicholas Brothers. Their dance has them leaping up and down tables, stairs and drums often landing in splits. Their routine is done in one long take, none of the cut away shots to mask the fact that most music videos today feature stars who can barely dance. The Nicholas Brothers can also be found on Youtube for a glimpse at this scene. I loved that it is an all black cast. I would watch it for the Nicholas Brothers alone though I was laughing with delight seeing Cab Calloway and Fats Waller.
