Jackie

Killer Diller

1948 NR

A killer lineup of top black performers is featured in this 1948 musical about an Apollo Theatre-type variety show. The talent includes the Nat "King" Cole Trio, Jackie "Moms" Mabley, Butterfly McQueen and Beverly White on such numbers as "Ain't Misbehavin'," "Breezy and the Bass," "Don't Sit on My Bed" and others. Dance aficionados will relish a lightning-fast Lindy Hop routine by the Congaroo Dancers.
