Stormy Weather (Blu-ray)

We no longer offer this title for sale, this listing is here for reference. Screen Archives still carries a wide selection of Twilight Time titles.
Stormy Weather (1943) is a groundbreaking musical featuring an astounding all-African-American cast, perhaps never matched for sheer brilliance. The film’s slight showbiz-based romance is really a pretext for some 20 musical numbers performed by the sterling likes of Lena Horne, Bill Robinson, Cab Calloway, Fats Waller, The Nicholas Brothers and the Katherine Dunham dance troupe.  The outstanding musical score is highlighted by Waller’s performance of his own “Ain’t Misbehavin’” and the classic title tune by Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler, sung in barn-burning fashion by the inimitable Miss Horne.
