An All-coloured Vaudeville Show

1935 (MIFF 1996, Reel Dance - Cinematheque de la Dance)

Director: Roy Mack

"When The Nicholas Brothers made their first entrance at the Cotton Club, Harold was 8 years old and Fayard 14. Impeccably dressed in top hat and tails, they were a combination of youth and sophistication which totally charmed the audience...it was as if a young Fred Astaire and his even younger brother, had become acrobats.
