The Nicholas Brothers grew up in Philadelphia, the sons of musicians who played in their own band at the old Standard Theater, their mother at the piano and father on drums.

 

By 1940, the Nicholas Brothers  were in Hollywood and for several decades alternated between movies, nightclubs, concerts, Broadway, television, and extensive tours of Latin America, Africa, and Europe.

 

Stormy Weather is a 1943 American musical film produced and released by 20th Century Fox. This musical was considered to be one of the best of its day, with electric dancing and stunning acrobatics.
