In addition to its historical importance, 'Stormy Weather' is also a great musical. I couldn't refrain from wriggling on my couch while watching and hearing Fats Waller and Cab Calloway. See it on Blu-ray. Highly recommended.
A great showcase for African American talent of the day, although I feel Cabin in the Sky is the better film, which also features all black cast. The songs by Horne, the insane dancing by Nicholas brothers, and more make this an excellent musical and one you should check out asap, not just for its historical importance. Just sheer fun from start to finish. 4.5 stars
