Description by OLDIES.com:
PLUS: BUBBLING OVER (1934): A rare musical comedy short starring Ethel Waters, who plays an overworked housewife fed up with her lazy family. Her only hope is a rich uncle from out of town – but she doesn't know he just escaped from a mental institution!
BOOGIE-WOOGIE DREAM (1944): Boogie-Woogie Dream shows the after hours at an upscale nightclub, where the hired help have an impromptu jam session for the nearly passed-out clientele. The performers include a 24-year-old Lena Horne and "boogie-woogie" jazz pianists Albert Ammons and Pete Johnson. This enchanting short subject was shot in 1941 (making it only the second time Horne had been captured on film, after 1938's The Duke is Tops) but wasn't released until 1944, when Horne had become a major star thanks to Cabin in the Sky (1943).
I AIN'T GONNA OPEN THAT DOOR (1947): Stepin Fetchit refuses to open the door for a "three-sheets-to-the-wind" friend in this musical comedy short.
