75 Years Ago, One of the Best Dance Routines Ever Was Filmed, Unrehearsed on the First Take

Fred Astaire said it was’ the greatest dancing he had ever seen on film’. In a dance performance for the ages, the Nicholas Brother, Fayard( 1914 a

2006) and Harold( 1921 a

2000 ), dazzled audiences with their acrobatic routine to Cab Calloway’s hit song, Jumpin’ Jive . Not simply that, but the routine was unrehearsed and what you realize was the first take![ source]

The performance was from the 1943 musical film, Stormy Weather. In 2001, Stormy Weather was selected for the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”
