Introduced by film historian Donald Bogle

A Hollywood extravaganza, with Lena Horne heading a once-in-a-lifetime all-Black cast that includes Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, Katherine Dunham and her dance company, Fats Waller, Cab Calloway, and — in perhaps the greatest show-stopper in movie history — the amazing dancing Nicholas Brothers. With Ada Brown.
“STORMY WEATHER is a first-rate show, just the kind of spirited divertisement that will make you forget all about your own momentary weather troubles.”
– The New York Times
