See Video from TCM's Fan Community:

"Geechy Joe" from Stormy Weather
1943. Cab Calloway makes an entrance as his Orchestra plays the song. *As you can tell by the song title, it is clearly dated. I did not post this to offend anyone native to South Carolina and the Gullao Islands.* 


Minnie The Moocher (1932)
A Pre-Code delight!
