That was great! I remember "Jeepers Creepers", probably saw it on TV when I was a kid, but the "Mutiny in the Nursery" was wonderful.

LordBaryonic says:

A truly brilliant musical performance, in every way.

Unfortunately the casual racism and stereotypes present in (parts of) the clip make it somewhat uncomfortable to watch today…

Stuart Perry says:

Love Louis, Maxine Sullivan- and Dick Powell. If you look closely- you'll see a young Dorothy Dandridge and the Dandridge Sisters among the chorus.

Love Pops…Love him by the hours.  Satch, the best.

The ONLY movies in the 1930s in which he was featured throughout without dissapearing after ONE scene in his previous bing crosby/mae west movies……he CAN act, but those people want to lump him in ONE category…but whites then didn't want no ONE BLACK star other than a stereotype, ala Steppin Fetchit……

Satchmo =the best ,………

Jim Stark says:

Notice how they refer to Louis Armstrong, the single most significant musician/singer in the history of the USA,  as "Uncle Tom."    Totally unnecessary, but typical of the racist mentality of the times.   Hire the guy because his superstar talent will help your picture, but then insult him and his people with the dialogue.    The data never lies.  Don't ever forget  this is the default attitude.

Whoever done this did a GREAT job…Louis was THE MOVIE (I like Dick Powell, too…the REST is boring)……watched this a few years ago, and he was the most featured than his past movie roles, thak you.
