The Nicholas Brothers in Stormy Weather (1943)The Nicholas Brothers in Stormy Weather (1943)

Fred Astaire once called this performance 'the greatest dance number ever filmed'. The Nicholas Brothers were an African-American team of dancing brothers, Fayard (19142006) and Harold Nicholas (19212000). With their highly acrobatic technique ('flash dancing'), high level of artistry and daring innovations, they were considered by many the greatest tap dancers of their day.

If Astaire had a high opinion of this routine, who are we to argue? Sure beats the hell out of modern 'talent' show dancers.

Where was the stormy weather? It looked pretty dry to me. The dancing was good, though.

It shows the 'holding the crotch and flinging people about brigade' up to what they - crap. Amazing. And they're fully clothed, so they wouldn't do well in todays' multi talented world.
