In this upbeat tale of music and romance, the career of show business legend Bill Williamson (real-life legend Bill "Bojangles" Robinson) is celebrated through performances by the hottest black musical stars of the early to mid 20th century. The actual talent in the beloved "staircase tap" with Shirley Temple, Bill's story is told by the biggest names, through best-selling songs and with dancers who took your breath away, including Fats Waller, Ada Brown, Cab Calloway, and the Nicholas Brothers. Jam-packed with more than 20 musical numbers, Stormy Weather is also the story of Bill's lifelong love for a beautiful singer, played by Lena Horne.
Editor's Note
A husband and wife team are struggling to make it in show business, she singing and he tap dancing. Fats Waller sings "Ain't Misbehavin'" and Lena sings the title tune.
