It's the no-names that really make it

Okay, Lena Horne had the face to sell this thing, but the real action is with Fats Waller, Cab Calloway, and some amazing dancers that go unnamed. Especially the insanely acrobatic climactic dance sequence to Cab Calloway's "Jumpin' Jive," in which two guys tap dance across table tops in a way you'll have to see to believe...

And how can you beat Fats Waller singing and mugging his was through his most famous song, "Ain't Misbehaving?"

Have your hand on the remote, you'll wanna skip past the good-natured but bland dialog, just as at the dance/song sequences you'll want to hit rewind again and again...
