Livin' In A Great Big Way

Priceless. A great Dorothy Fields/JimmyMcHugh tune, dancers Bill "Bojangles" Robinson and Jeni LeGon, and -- my personal favorite -- the irreplaceable and irreverent Thomas "Fats" Waller. From the 1935 movie "Hooray For Love." Enjoy.

What's the matter with him?!

What a classic! Love the film, the song, and, of course, its performers!

Ever notice how Fats carries only tiny things out of the house? Was he shirking, do you suppose?
