Rochester shows what he can do
In a previous post I recalled seeing Eddie "Rochester" Anderson as a song-and-dance man. I've found the movie in question: Buck Benny Rides Again, a 1940 programmer that brought Jack Benny's radio cast, and its recurring mock-Western "Buck Benny" sketch, to the screen. The film is forgettable, except for this scene in which Eddie Anderson shows what a fine all-round performer he was. His partner is Theresa Harris.
