“Never fails to bring down the house, and bring the audience to their feet”
—Shadow and Act
“A first-rate show”
—The New York Times
“A celebration of black musical talent”
This all-African American musical spectacular is an absolute treasure of the Cinema. Dancer Bill “Bojangles” Robinson’s fictionalized life story stars the man himself with a galaxy of other musical stars: Lena Horne, Fats Waller, Cab Calloway, the Katherine Dunham Dance Company, and, most unforgettably, the Nicholas Brothers, whose stairway dance number never fails to provoke spontaneous applause.
