I CONCUR! A beautiful black and white Black musical biography of W C HANDY shot in VistaVisioN circa 1958 with a who's who of Black musical royalty... Nat"King" Cole, Eartha Kitt, Ela Fitzgerald, Pearl Bailey, Cab Calloway, and the incomparable Mahalia Jackson! With Ruby Dee, Juano Hernandez, and a young Billy Preston as young WC Handy. It may be fact-based fiction but it is WONDERFUL ENTERTAINMENT. This film, along with STORMY WEATHER, CABIN IN THE SKY, and THE DUKE IS TOPS are essential records of entertainers long gone, but who had a huge impact on American and World music and culture. The more access we and future generations have to their work, the better! I hope that Paramount will do right by this film or else offer it to Criterion but we need a release... and while we're at it... WARNER ARCHIVE, can we ever have CABIN IN THE SKY on Blu-Ray? Hope. Springs. Eternal.I'm waiting for another one never on DVD or Blu-Ray (and I don't even think it's been on VHS) - St. Louis Blues (1958).
