Chattanooga Choo Choo!
The Glenn Miller Orchestra, The Nicholas Brothers, and the always entertaining, Dorthy Dandridge tear up the stage in this vintage film clip. Incredibly, this number was shot in one take because studios did not want to spend extra money on film for black performers. This classic number is entertainment at its best, showcasing true talent in the raw back when TV was just a new form of theatre.
