Musical variety filmed at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, New York City.
fantastic short revue featuring great Black stars of the 1950s
Rhythm & Blues Review (1955) is a collection of Snader telescriptions filmed as individual musical shorts between 1950 & 1952, with some new music, an emcee, & comedy routines added, these these being Studio Telescriptions been filmed in 1954.
An original-to-the-film Studio Telescription performance of surprising glory is the jump-jazz or Texas boogie-woogie genius of Amos Milburn performing his 1950 classic Bad Bad Whiskey (1954). Milburn is a singer much more to my tastes.
The extreme popularity of this one song so overshadowed his other achievements that to some he began to look like a one-hit-wonder, though not to those who paid attention to R & B charts.
